Wikipedia: Population Ecology

San Francisco, California - United States

Population ecology is a major sub-field of ecology that deals with the dynamics of species populations and how these populations interact with the environment. It is the study of how the population sizes of species living together in groups change over time and space. The development of population ecology owes much to demography and actuarial life tables. Population ecology is important in conservation biology, especially in the development of population viability analysis (PVA) which makes it possible to predict the long-term probability of a species persisting in a given habitat patch, such as a national park. Although population ecology is a subfield of biology, it provides interesting problems for mathematicians and statisticians who work in population dynamics.

With the recent developments in applied mathematics and molecular techniques, we believe that the classical view of Ecology, Conservation, Evolution and Genetics as different disciplines no longer holds. Our research interest is right at the intersection of these disciplines and we focus on applied as well as theoretical aspects of population functioning and management. Our main interest is in the study of population dynamics and evolutionary de
