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.

Like the MacArthur—Wilson model, the passive sampling model predicts more
species on large islands than on small. However, the MacArthur– Wilson model
predicts recurrent extinction and turnover of island populations, whereas the ...
They used these data to predict island species richness with the passive
sampling model. In Figure 7.15, the solid line shows the predicted species
richness and a confidence interval based on the passive sampling model.
