You can most easily reach me
I am interested in a
range of topics in theoretical ecology and population biology, and more
generally in mathematical biology.
I am a Professor in the Department
of Environmental Science and
Policy and I am also a member of the Center for Population Biology.
I completed my Ph.D. in Applied
Mathematics at Cornell University
in 1977 under the supervision of Simon A. Levin
and have been at UC Davis
(located in beautiful Davis,
California) since 1979.
I accept graduate students through Ecology, Population Biology, or Applied
Math. Prospective students should have a strong quantitative
background and be interested in questions in population biology -- feel
free to contact me or current or former students.
My textbook, Population Biology: Concepts and Models, was published in
January 1997. On the ESP 121 web page
there is the syllabus of the course I teach based on the book.
I am the Editor
in Chief of a journal (with first volume published in 2008) published by Springer-- Theoretical Ecology.
