Summary

Complex Population Dynamics A Theoretical/Empirical Synthesis. Peter Turchin. Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ, 2003. 468 pp. $75, £49.95. ISBN 0-691-09020-3. Paper, $29.95, £19.95. ISBN 0-691-09021-1.

In a synthesis that highlights our improved understanding of the behavior of nonlinear dynamical systems, Turchin offers a theory of population oscillations that integrates mathematical models, statistical analyses, and field experiments.
