Sammanfattning

The theme of the book is the distribution and abundance of organisms in space and time. The core of the book lies in how local births and deaths are tied to emigration and immigration processes, and how environmental variability at different scales affects population dynamics with stochastic processes and spatial structure and shows how elementary analytical tools can be used to understand population fluctuations, synchrony, processes underlying range distributions and community structure and species coexistence. The book also shows how spatial population dynamics models can be used to understand life history evolution and aspects of evolutionary game theory. Although primarily based on analytical and numerical analyses of spatial population processes, data from several study systems are also dealt with.

• Details the explicit spatial extension of the analyses of population and community processes • This book illustrates how theory and data analysis are close together and how data can be used to illustrate fundamental processes and vice versa • Through viewing population dynamics as a spatial process allows us to approach population ecology from the perspective of self-organised processes
