It is impossible to predict the exact behavior of all biological systems and how these same systems are exemplified by patterns of complexity and regularity. Decades of research in ecology have documented how these sorts of patterns are the consequences of deceptively simple rules that determine the nature of the patterns created. Chaos in Ecology will explain how simple beginnings result in complicated results.

Chaos in Ecology is the inaugural volume of Theoretical Ecology Series. The authors of this volume have employed data from a proven model system in population dynamics. As a result, this book will be of interest to anyone interested in the ecology of populations.

Review quote

"This work is warmly recommended to all theoretical and field ecologists, and all scientists interested in nonlinear dynamics."

" elegant blend of mathematics, statistics, and biology..."
-CHANCE (Fall 2003)

" in statistical concepts and methods. Anyone interested in the dynamics of populations will benefit from reading this book."
-ECOLOGY (2003)

"In a very real sense, Cushing et al. have done for ecology what Newton did for physics."
-Aaron A. King, University of Tennessee (2002)

"This is the definitive source on chaos in ecology. Well-written and authoritative."
-Simon Levin, Princeton University (2002)

"Chaos in Ecology ought to be read by both field and theoretical ecologists."
