Product Description

Review

"May's Stability and Complexity in Model Ecosystems was undoubtedly the most influential treatise in theoretical ecology since the pioneering efforts of Volterra and Lotka. It transformed the subject by brokering a marriage between theory and fact that had been - and is still too often - missing in theoretical ecology. It is no coincidence that the full integration of theory into ecology has occurred since the original appearance of this landmark book. May's new Introduction wonderfully places events in perspective." - Simon Levin, Princeton University"

a classic 14 Feb. 2008
By J. Tolosa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A facsimile reprinting of the 1974 Second Edition. It is great that Princeton University Press has made again available this classic work in mathematical biology. There is a wealth of mathematical ideas and methods, carefully written. Several Appendices provide additional mathematical background. All in all, this books continues to be a source of information and inspiration to this day.
A true classic, one of my favorite books from my grad student days 28 Sept. 2013
By Ken Caldeira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anybody who is modeling ecosystems should read this book.

I don't think you can consider yourself a well-educated ecosystem modeler without having read this book.

As the title of this review says, this book was one of my favorites from my grad student days. At the time, I was trying to model this system: EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem, Small Sphere

I never published that work, but the effort led to my 1989 paper in Nature on evolutionary pressure on planktonic DMS production.
