Evolutionary ecology is the study of how natural selection has moulded the major adaptive ecological and behavioural traits of plants and animals. This book covers the topics of major interest in contemporary research - life-history evolution, optimal foraging, kin selection and inclusive fitness, the evolution of sex, the sex ratio, sexual selection and the application of game theory to evolutionary problems. It provides an account of the theoretical models underpinning our understanding of evolutionary adaptation. The book is intended for any upper-level undergraduate or graduate course which explores theoretical models of evolutionary ecology from first principles. Aimed at a biological rather than a mathematical audience, the text assumes only some familiarity with elementary calculus. Chapters contain numerous exercises, with answers included at the back of the book. The text keeps mathematical detail to a minimum: each chapter has an accompanying "Mathematica" notebook (accessible by downloading from Math Source) that gives model solutions to the exercises.
