en Limba Engleză Paperback – 26 Jan 2006
This book should be invaluable for advanced undergraduate teaching, and gives a fresh range of subjects to choose from. Des Thompson, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society 2006, 37:3
Dr Sharon K. Collinge's research is based primarily in grassland ecosystems of the American west, integrating theories and methods of ecology and conservation to examine how changing landscapes affect interactions among native species. Her research centres on how habitat loss and fragmentation influence species interactions, particularly those involving disease dynamics in grassland mammals. Dr Collinge received her PhD from Harvard University in landscape ecologyin 1995 and has been on the faculty of the University of Colorado-Boulder since 1998.Dr Chris Ray studies the demographic and genetic dynamics of spatially structured populations. Her research includes the development and application of predictive models, and the use of long-term field studies to test theory in population biology. Dr Ray received her PhD from the University of California-Davis in population biology in 1997, has worked on threatened and endangered species management projects for the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and has been a research associate at theUniversity of Colorado-Boulder since 2001.
