A Primer of Ecology
With the aim of teaching students the essential models in population and community ecology, this book explains in detail the basic concepts of exponential and logistic population growth, age-structured demography, metapopulation dynamics, competition, predation and island biogeography.

If the intersection is at the peak of the victim isocline, the predator and victim
populations will cycle as in the simple Lotka–Volterra model (Figure 6.10a).
However, if the predator isocline crosses to the right of the hump, the predator
and victim ...
Nicholas J. Gotelli. <! Figure 6.13 (a) Effects of carrying capacity on the predator
isocline. If the predator population is limited by factors other than prey density, the
predator isocline bends to the right. No matter how large the victim population, ...
Graphically, this equilibrium species number corresponds to the point on the x
axis beneath the intersection of the immigration and extinction curves (Figure 7.5)
. At the intersection, the rate at which new species arrive is matched by the rate at
