About this Item

Volterra, Vito (1860-1940) and D'Ancona, Umberto. Les associations biologiques au point de vue mathematique. 8vo. [2], 96, [2]pp. Text diagrams. Paris: Hermann & Cie., 1935. 259 x 168 mm. Original printed wrappers (uncut & unopened). Fine copy. First Edition. Volterra, an eminent mathematician, initiated the mathematical treatment of competitive exclusion in mixed populations with a paper published in 1926 (see G-M 145.64), and continued working in this field for the remainder of his career. "Volterra, described somewhere by Robert May as the greatest mathematician to make a contribution to biology, was stimulated to develop his ideas by the changes in proportion of fishes in the Mediterranean that had resulted from suspension of commercial fisheries during the war years of 1915-1918, to which phenomenon his attention was drawn by his son-in-law, Umberto D'Ancona, a very eminent hydrobiologist" (Hutchinson, Introduction to Population Ecology, p. 120). The present work, written with D'Ancona, summarizes the work of Volterra and others in this field; it makes reference to the writings of G. F. Gause (author of The Struggle for Existence, 1934) and A. J. Lotka, both of whom were influenced by Volterra's work. DSB. Bookseller Inventory # 38920
