This is an excellent book for students or faculty interested in learning more about the current state of the art in modeling of biological systems. The authors make a great effort to keep the mathematical sophistication at a level that students (or faculty) who primarily have a biological background will still be able to follow in some detail. They are also able to suggest some of the exciting current areas of research and new areas for the future. All in all, well worth reading if you are interested in the topic of modeling of biological systems.
This book is excellent at describing the utility of models for ecologists. It describes the theory and application. Unlike many others, it also describes the limitations. It is written in such as way that it is useful for novices to experienced statisticians.
Although I found most of the chapters were not relevant to what I am doing, chapters 1;2;8;9 were right on the money. Really helped me in my PhD research.
The book is in good shape and it came on time. No pages ripped, no highlights, very nice.
