Spatial ecology via reaction-difusion equations. (English) Zbl 1087.92058
Wiley Series in Mathematical and Computational Biology. Chichester: John Wiley & Sons (ISBN 0-471-49301-5/hbk; 978-0-470-87129-4/ebook). xiii, 411 p. £ 95.00; $ 142.50 (2003).

Publisher’s description: Many ecological phenomena may be modelled using apparently random processes involving space (and possibly time). Such phenomena are classified as spatial in their nature and include all aspects of pollution. This book addresses the problem of modelling spatial effects in ecology and population dynamics using reaction-diffusion models.

This monograph deals with a rapidly expanding area of research for biologists and applied mathematicians and provides a unified and coherent account of methods developed to study spatial ecology via reaction-diffusion models. Further, it provides the reader with the tools needed to construct and interpret models and offers specific applications of both the models and the methods. The authors have played a dominant role in this field for years. This is an essential reading for graduate students and researchers working with spatial modelling in mathematics, statistics, ecology, geography and biology.
