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.

Instead, the only distinction is between populations that persist and those that go
extinct. The second shift concerns the spatial scale at which we study populations
. In Chapters 1–3 we emphasized equilibrium solutions for population size, ...
Thus, both species cannot persist in the long run, and one will be driven to
extinction by competition. However, there is no predictable winner. The
population that has a numerical advantage is the one that will probably win in
competition, but ...
