Samenvatting

The field of theoretical ecology has expanded dramatically in the last few years. This volume gives detailed coverage of the main developing areas in spatial ecological theory, and is written by world experts in the field. Integrating the perspective from field ecology with novel methods for simplifying spatial complexity, it offers a didactical treatment with a gradual increase in mathematical sophistication from beginning to end. In addition, the volume features introductions to those fundamental phenomena in spatial ecology where emerging spatial patterns influence ecological outcomes quantitatively. An appreciation of the consequences of this is required if ecological theory is to move on in the 21st century. Written for reseachers and graduate students in theoretical, evolutionary and spatial ecology, applied mathematics and spatial statistics, it will be seen as a ground breaking treatment of modern spatial ecological theory.

Recensie(s)

'... a valuable text for graduate students and researchers in ecology ...'. Monatshefte fur Mathematik A striking outlier in the edited volume literature. From a technical point of view, it is a tour de force and easily the best-edited volume I have ever read, reviewed, or taught from. There are two dozen chapters on every topic imaginable, and they flow together in a seamless and even stately manner that is altogether absent in most edited volumes in the ecological literature...possessed of rhetorical, literary, and artistic qualities that are sadly (and self-destructively) neglected in modern scientific communication--especially edited volumes. Ecology The Geometry of Ecological Interactions: Simplifying Spatial Compexity consistently tries to explain where and why the mean-field approximation breaks down...In addition to helping to bridge the gap between theory and how to apply it, this book will be a good reference for the library of graduate students and researchers who work in this ecotone between theory and applicability. Natural Areas Journal [P]rovides an excellent snapshot of these new mathematical and theoretical frontiers for modeling spatial ecological interactions...With its mathematically rigorous treatments, applications to real ecological problems, and proposals for extending the use of such modeling techniques in the future, this resource will be of great interest to all researchers in theoretical ecology, mathematical biology, and ecological modeling...
