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.

Now we should consider the possibility that extinction might be affected by f. How
might this happen? As before, we assume that each occupied site produces an
excess number of propagules that leave the site and arrive at other populations ...
the system and from propagules derived from external “mainland” sources.
Similarly, there are extrinsic and intrinsic forces leading to extinction. These
factors can be incorporated into a more general metapopulation model, which
includes the ...
