Applied Population Ecology introduces
junior- and senior-level undergraduates to the principles of population
ecology. Each chapter of the book discusses a topic in detail, with examples
from wildlife management, conservation biology, and natural resource
management, and chapter-end exercises reinforce the concepts covered. These
exercises emphasize practical problems facing ecologists, conservation
biologists, and natural resource managers, and incorporation of variability
into simple models of population dynamics.
Most of the exercises involve the use
of the RAMAS® EcoLab
2.0 software that is included with every copy of the book. EcoLab 2.0
combines tutorial features of more advanced RAMAS programs that are used in
research and teaching at over 1000 universities and governmental laboratories
in 40 countries. Students work with real data on the dynamics of endangered
species, recovering populations, harvested species, and human populations. The
use of software instead of analytical models facilitates understanding of these
important concepts early on, even by those without strong mathematical
backgrounds. An instructor's supplement (available to adopters) includes
answers to exercises and overhead transparency masters.
