    e-books in Ecology category Environmental Biology by Matthew R. Fisher (ed.) - Pressbooks, This open textbook covers the most salient environmental issues, from a biological perspective. Topics include the fundamentals of ecology, biodiversity, pollution, climate change, food production, and human population growth. A great deal has taken place in the world of deer biology since Wild deer populations, although ever increasing in many areas of the world, face new hazards of habitat loss, environmental contamination, and overexploitation. Some species are closer to extinction than ever. Game managers often face political as well as biological challenges.

Reenvisioning tuberculosis from the perspective of population biology, this book examines why the disease is so persistent and what must be done to fight it. Treating tuberculosis and its human hosts as dynamic, interacting populations, Christopher Dye seeks new answers to key questions by drawing on demography, ecology, epidemiology, evolution.

Macarthur, Robert, Connell. Book Description Animal herding (or pastoralism) is a vanishing way of life that has been practised worldwide.

The Human Biology of Pastoralist Populations is the first volume to examine systematically the biology and health of pastoral groups as opposed to the social, cultural and economic dimensions of the pastoralist way of life.3/5(1).

This textbook provides an introduction to the biology and ecology of populations by emphasizing the roles of simple mathematical models in explaining the growth and behavior of populations.

The author only assumes acquaintance with elementary calculus, and provides tutorial explanations where needed to develop mathematical by: 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/5(5). This page is currently inactive and is retained for historical reference. Either the page is no longer relevant or consensus on its purpose has become unclear. To revive discussion, seek broader input via a forum such as the village pump.

This collection of essays deals with the foundation and historical development of population biology and its relationship to population genetics and population ecology on the one hand and to the rapidly growing fields of molecular quantitative genetics, genomics and bioinformatics on the other.

Such an interdisciplinary treatment of population biology has never been attempted before. The Human Population. Humans have been called the most successful "weed species" Earth has ever seen. Like weeds, human populations are fast growing. They also disperse rapidly. They have colonized habitats from pole to pole.

Overall, the human population has had a pattern of exponential growth, as shown in Figure below. Population Books Showing of The Coming Population Crash: and Our Planet's Surprising Future (Hardcover) by.

After introducing general concepts related to the biology of genomes and their evolution, the book covers state-of-the-art methods for the analysis of genomes in populations, including demography inference, population structure analysis and detection of selection, using both model-based inference and simulation procedures.

This book combines modern concepts of epidemiology and molecular biology with computer-modeling. Applying these concepts to the analysis of historical epidemics, the authors show that they were not, in fact, outbreaks of bubonic plague/5.

Two key premises in this approach to population biology are that populations are spatially structured into assemblages of local breeding populations, and that migration among the local populations has some effect on local dynamics, including the possibility of.

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. Buy The Human Biology of Pastoral Populations () (): NHBS - Edited By: William R Leonard and Michael H Crawford, Cambridge University PressPrice Range: £ - £.
