Population Biology

  Population biology describes the study of the structure of biological communities as ecosystems. The way in which individuals and species interact with one another is dependent upon behaviour and the effect of the environment, and can be studied mathematically in terms of genetics. The fluctuations in size and changes in structure which affect all living populations are products of the dynamic equilibrium in which biological communities exist: the population biologist attempts to predict or explain these fluctuations by constructing models which imitate the processes involved. However, such models inevitably oversimplify the situation as population biology is a very complex science. RB
