About this book


Mathematical biology - the use of mathematical ideas and models in the biosciences - is a fast growing, very exciting and increasingly important inderdisciplinary field. This textbook is an account of some of the major techniques and models used and of some genuine practical applications drawn from current areas of research interest in, for example, population ecology, developmental biology, physiology, epidemiology and evolution. It provides the reader with a thorough background, sufficient to start genuine interdisciplinary collaborative reserach with biomedical scientists.
