The Primer explains in detail basic concepts of exponential and logistic population growth, age-structured demography, metapopulation dynamics, competition, predation, island biogeography, and, in a chapter new to this edition, succession.
The book may be used as a self-teaching tutorial by students, as a primary textbook, or as a supplemental text to a general ecology textbook.

Mar 18, KM rated it it was amazing. This relatively concise, but dense book explains the foundational models of ecology: breaking down equations into their relevant parts, embracing analogies and describing case studies, and writing each chapter in a predictable format.
I really appreciated its straightforwardness! I wish it were the first book I read upon entering grad school. Jun 03, Kevin rated it really liked it. This book has better figures, examples, and the text has fewer errors. I would suggest the newer 4th edition however blue cover I think. Solid book and a great review of population ecology. For a comprehensive review of population AND community ecology I would suggest this book and the Mittelbach book titled "Community Ecology.
Feb 24, Tj rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: budding and seasoned ecologists. This is an excellent ecology text. It's focus is on the "black box math" aspect of ecological theoretical modeling. Gotelli is clear and concise in his explanation of how you get from one form of an equation to the next. He also does so in a non-threatening non-mathematics way.
He makes it clear that you have to be no mathemagician to understand ecological modeling. Great textbook to learn the mathematical aspects of Ecology. Very clear and to the point. Sep 13, Abigail rated it it was amazing Shelves: nature-ecology. I was assigned this book for my PhD comprehensive exam in Population Ecology. Excellent book that every student in the field should read, my only regret is not reading it sooner.
