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.  To submit a paper, go here, for more information go here.
