9780123234469: Metapopulation Biology: Ecology, Genetics, and Evolution

Habitat destruction has left many landscapes increasingly fragmented. These isolated populations, or metapopulations, are in a constant state of change-growing, shrinking, disappearing, and reappearing. This unique volume brings together an international team of ecologists, geneticists, and evolutionary biologists who provide a comprehensive review of metapopulations. This book will provide fundamental reading for anyone studying the spatial dynamics of populations.
This book is an essential reference for anyone who is interested in conservation and population dynamics.

  • Essential for biologists interested in spatial population dynamics
  • Serves as a valuable reference to conservationists
  • Covers both the principal theories and field studies
  • Reviews the ecology, genetics, and evolution of metapopulations

About the Author:

Hanski obtained his first degree in zoology and botany in 1976 from the University of Helsinki, Finland, and his D.Phil. in zoology in 1979 from the University of Oxford. Since then he has been a postdoctoral researcher and faculty member at the University of Helsinki and is currently research professor in the Academy of Finland, where he directs the Metapopulation Research Group, one of the national Centers of Excellence in Research. In addition, he has served on the scientific advisory board of the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) and has been on the steering group of the DIVERSITAS Programme on Biodiversity. He was foreign vice president of the Society for the Study of Evolution. He has served on the editorial boards of Trends in Ecology and Evolution, The American Naturalist, Journal of Insect Conservation, Global Change Biology, Annales Zooligici Fennici, Oecologia, Oikos, and Theoretical Population Biology. In 1999, he received the International Ecology Institute Prize in Terrestrial Ecology as well as the President's Gold Medal from the British Ecological Society. In 2000, Hanski was elected as a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. In 2001, he received the Sewall Wright Award from the American Society of Naturalists.

Review:

"The primary value of this book lies in its self-conscious exploration of a paradigm under which ecological and evolutionary models have proliferated without substantial empirical tests." --ECOLOGY

"...represents an important transformation in the way we think about dynamics of populations, their dispersal and persistence. ...there is something in here for everyone interested in the subject. A particular aspect of the book is the attempt to connect the disciplines of population biology and landscape ecology. This is long overdue and represents a significant step in the progression towards workable models. ...very stimulating and relevant to my interest in conservation genetics." --BRITISH ECOLOGICAL SOCIETY BULLETIN
