The management and conservation of natural populations relies heavily on concepts and results generated from models of population dynamics, and yet this is the first book to present a unified and coherent explanation of the underlying theory.
This novel text begins with a consideration of what makes a good state variable, progressing from the simplest models (those with a single variable such as abundance or biomass) to more complex models with the multiple keyvariables of population (including age, size, and life history stage) and spatial structure.
Throughout the book, attention is paid to concepts such as population variability, population stability, population viability/persistence, and harvest yield.
Subsequent chapters address specific applications toconservation such as recovery planning for species at risk, fishery management, and the spatial management of marine resources.
