Population ecology is the branch of biology that studies the structures of populations and how they change. The unique thing about population ecologists is that they study the relationships within ecosystems by studying the properties of populations rather than individuals: Population size is the total number of individuals in the population. Population density refers to [ ].

An Introduction to Ecology. Ecology is the study of the interactions of living organisms with their environment. Within the discipline of ecology, researchers work at four specific levels, sometimes discretely and sometimes with overlap.

These levels are organism, population. : An Introduction to Ecology and Population Biology (): Emmel, Thomas C: BooksCited by: Stressing the actual use of quantitative methods on real field data, this book provides a balanced treatment of both plant and animal ecology.

Beginning with the simple single population, Dr. Poole proceeds to the analysis of field populations, and concludes with the study of interactions in communities of species, energy flow, and nutrient Price: $ This completely revised, fourth edition of Introduction to Plant Population Biology continues the approach taken by its highly successful predecessors.

Ecological and genetic principles are introduced and theory is made accessible by clear, accurate exposition with plentiful examples. Models and theoretical arguments are developed gradually, requiring a minimum of mathematics.

The book. Introduction to Ecology I This Introductory Ecology Module explains the hierarchical structure of ecology-species, populations, communities, and ecosystems. Each lecture will focus on a key ecological principle then provide applied examples to further demonstrate the concept.

Introduction to Population Biology covers all these areas and more. Taking a quantitative and Darwinian perspective, the basic theory of population processes is developed using mathematical models. To allow students of biology, ecology and evolution to gain a real understanding of the subject, key features include: * step-by-step 4/5(1).

Population biology has been investigated quantitatively for many decades, resulting in a rich body of scientific literature. Ecologists often avoid this literature, put off by its apparently formidable mathematics.

The Populus software contains a set of simulation models used in teaching population biology and evolutionary ecology at the University of Minnesota.

This second edition of Dick Neal's unique textbook on population biology addresses these questions and offers a comprehensive analysis of evolutionary theory in the areas of ecology, population genetics, and behaviour.

Taking a quantitative and Darwinian perspective, Neal uses mathematical models to develop the basic theory of population processes. Population ecology studies the number of individuals in an area, as well as how and why their population size changes over time. The Karner blue butterfly, an endangered species, makes a good model for both organismal and population ecology since it is dependent, as a population, on a specific plant that grows within specific areas, which, thus.

—Arthur M. Shapiro, Quarterly Review of Biology "I liked An Introduction to Methods and Models in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology, and think it would be a very good text in the classroom. This book is intended to function as a lab book, teaching students topics conceptually, encouraging users to work out expectations by hand and.

The book emphasizes the particular characteristics of plants that affect their population biology, and evolutionary questions that are particularly relevant for plants. Wherever appropriate, it is shown how ecology and genetics interact, presenting a rounded picture of the population biology of plants.

This book is intended as an introductory text for students studying a wide range of courses concerned with animal management, zoo biology and wildlife conservation, and should also be useful to zookeepers and other zoo professionals.

This book provides an introduction to stochastic population dynamics, combining classical background material with a variety of modern approaches, including previously unpublished results by the authors.
