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.

I am the founding Editor in Chief of  the journal   Theoretical Ecology., published by Springer  To submit a paper, go here, for more information go here.

More recently I coedited with Lou Gross The Encyclopedia of Theoretical Ecology, published by UC Press.
