The Struggle for Existence
Groundbreaking work presents a lucid introduction to the tools of mathematical biology, and discusses the author's own research with microbial populations. A landmark in modern science's grasp of the complexities of population competition, it provides a microcosm of the processes at work on a larger scale throughout the biosphere and offers the means for quantitative evaluation.
