Habitat destruction has left many landscapes increasingly fragmented. These isolated populations, or metapopulations, are in a constant state of change-growing, shrinking, disappearing, and reappearing. This unique volume brings together an international team of ecologists, geneticists, and evolutionary biologists who provide a comprehensive review of metapopulations. This book will provide fundamental reading for anyone studying the spatial dynamics of populations.
This book is an essential reference for anyone who is interested in conservation and population dynamics.

Here's what you say about us...

"The primary value of this book lies in its self-conscious exploration of a paradigm under which ecological and evolutionary models have proliferated without substantial empirical tests." --ECOLOGY

"...represents an important transformation in the way we think about dynamics of populations, their dispersal and persistence. ...there is something in here for everyone interested in the subject. A particular aspect of the book is the attempt to connect the disciplines of population biology and landscape ecology. This is long overdue and represents a significant step in the progression towards workable models. ...very stimulating and relevant to my interest in conservation genetics." --BRITISH ECOLOGICAL SOCIETY BULLETIN
