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.
