Theoretical Biologist's Toolbox by Marc Mangel

Book Description

Mathematical modelling is widely used in ecology and evolutionary biology and it is a topic that many biologists find difficult to grasp. In this new textbook Marc Mangel provides a no-nonsense introduction to the skills needed to understand the principles of theoretical and mathematical biology. Fundamental theories and applications are introduced using numerous examples from current biological research, complete with illustrations to highlight key points. Exercises are also included throughout the text to show how theory can be applied and to test knowledge gained so far. Suitable for advanced undergraduate courses in theoretical and mathematical biology, this book forms an essential resource for anyone wanting to gain an understanding of theoretical ecology and evolution.

Books By Author Marc Mangel

Dynamic State Variable Models in Ecology by Marc Mangel Dynamic State Variable Models in Ecology, Paperback (March 2000)

This is an introduction to a set of powerful and extremely flexible modelling techniques, starting at "square one" and continuing with chosen applications. The text also explains how to construct, test, and use dynamic state variable models in a wide range of contexts in evolutionary ecology.

Ecological Detective by Marc Mangel Ecological Detective, Paperback (February 1997)

How do we make the field and laboratory coherent? How do we use statistics to help experimentation? How do we integrate modeling and statistics? This book answers these questions. It makes liberal use of computer programming for the generation of hypotheses, exploration of data, and the comparison of different models.

Dynamic Modeling in Behavioral Ecology by Marc Mangel Dynamic Modeling in Behavioral Ecology, Paperback (January 1989)

Describes a flexible technique for the modeling of behavior, based on evolutionary principles. The technique employs stochastic dynamic programming and permits the analysis of behavioral adaptations wherein organisms respond to changes in their environment and physiological state. This book shows how to construct and use dynamic behavioral models.
