To summarize the contents of the monograph, in the single-species model section, there are six chapters on exponential, logistic, and Gompertz growth, on harvest models, on stochastic birth and death models, on discrete time models, on delay models, and on branching processes.

Beside the formulation and solution of the models, for some problems the mak theory is given. Here is a link to my Google Scholar profile.

Journal elemdnts Difference Equations and Applications, 11, Elements of Mathematical Ecology provides an introduction to classical and modern mathematical models, methods, and issues in population ecology.


At the end of each chapter, the author gives some recommendations for further readings which is a valuable help, especially for those which are not so familiar with the underlying theory.

In this section, four types of models for continuous space and time, discrete space and time, continuous space and discrete time as well as discrete space and continuous time are discussed. Integrodifference equations, Allee effects, and invasions.

Part one is split into single-species models, interacting and exploited populations. The model equations in population ecology are most often ordinary or partial differential equations.

The section on age-structured models consists of six chapters, in which the author distinguishes between continuous time and births, discrete time and births, continuous time and age structure as well as discrete time and age structure.


Topics covered include density dependence, bifurcations, demographic stochasticity, time delays, population interactions predation, competition, and mutualismand the application of optimal control theory to the management of renewable resources.
