Ecology Genetics and Evolution of Metapopulations by Ilkka A. Hanski

Book Description

This collection of specially commissioned articles looks at fragmented habitats, bringing together recent theoretical advances and empirical studies applying the metapopulation approach. Several chapters closely integrate ecology with genetics and evolutionary biology, and others illustrate how metapopulation concepts and models can be applied to answer questions about conservation, epidemiology, and speciation. The extensive coverage of theory from highly regarded scientists and the many substantive applications in this one-of-a-kind work make it invaluable to graduate students and researchers in a wide range of disciplines. It provides a comprehensive and authoritative account of all aspects of metapopulation biology, integrating ecology, genetics, and evolution. It is developed by recognized experts, including Hanski who won the Balzan Prize for Ecological Sciences. It covers novel applications of the metapopulation approach to conservation.
