Discusses field and laboratory data to illustrate the fundamental laws of population ecology.

Provides an overview of how population theory has developed.

Explores single-species population growth and self-limitation; metapopulations; and a broad range of interspecific interactions including parasite-host, predator-prey, and plant-herbivore.

Keeps the mathematics as simple as possible, using a careful step-by-step approach and including graphs and other visual aids to help understanding.
