'…this is a hugely engaging and interesting book. It's written with many asides and snippets of information about the topic, and particularly about the key figures in the history of theoretical biology … I do recommend this book as an excellent read and insight into the methodology of the theoretical biologist at work …' Biologist
'[the author] goes to considerable lengths to generate the necessary thirst through metaphor, humour, and through the clarity with which he writes about the subject. At the same time he is realistic about the need ultimately to get out a pencil and paper, and to work through the exercises, as the key to making real progress in understanding. … The blend of deterministic and stochastic modelling nicely captures the pulse of current thinking in theoretical ecology, and is a real strength of this book … For me, part of the charm of the book is its quirkiness, and I will be recommending it to my graduate students.' Fish and Fisheries
'… offers a refreshing approach … providing aspiring (and even established) theoreticians with a user-friendly and thorough introduction to a wide variety of techniques. … It is an accessible introduction to different models and analyses in theoretical population biology. … it is replete with exercises. These are not confined to the end of each chapter but appear after the introduction of associated material. This approach is a huge asset that underscores the book's pedagogic approach to mathematical biology, allowing easy reference to particular topics.' BioScience
'… very entertaining … a real desire to encourage enthusiastic participation, and a general sense of excitement about the use of theory in biology, helped along by the many references to classic studies in ecology and evolutionary biology.' Evolution
Marc Mangel is Professor of Mathematical Biology and Fellow of Stevenson College at the University of California, Santa Cruz campus.
