Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004. Large octavo, text illustrations, softcover.
Includes many Australian/New Zealand case studies. The core message of the book is that the key insights come from understanding what determines population growth rate, and that application of this approach will make ecology a more predictive science. Topics covered include population regulation, density-dependence, the ecological niche, resource and interference competition, habitat fragmentation and the ecological effects of environmental stress, together with applications to conservation biology, wildlife management, human demography and ecotoxicology. Also available in hardcover.
