This carefully structured laboratory manual explores, by meansof computer simulations, the key areas of populationdynamics through time. Using simply presented exercises, itteaches the programming and analysing skills students need forcreating their own models of population change. In this way,readers can contribute constructively to the conservation ofendangered species and the control of pest species.* Focus on biology rather than mathematical procedures
* Introduces new techniques and shortcuts gradually withcarefully explained commands
* Includes an extensive glossary

Undergraduates and postgraduates taking courses in populationecology, behavioural ecology and conservation will find this anideal accompaniment.
