9780521825375: Introduction to Population Biology

This text adopts an evolutionary perspective on population biology. To help undergraduate students better understand the subject, Dick Neal presents step-by-step spreadsheet simulations of many basic equations that explore the outcomes or predictions of the various models. Proven examples demonstrate how the equations can be applied to biological questions, and problem sets and detailed solutions challenge the student's comprehension. Many real life examples are also included to help the reader relate the quantitative theory to the natural world.
