Stability in Model Populations (MPB-31)
Laurence D Mueller, Amitabh Joshi
Throughout the twentieth century, biologists investigated the mechanisms that stabilize biological populations, populations which--if unchecked by such agencies as competition and predation--should grow geometrically. How is order in nature mainta...
