i Signs of Life i applies the mathematics of order and disorder of entropy chance and randomness of chaos and nonlinear dynamics to the various mysteries of the living world at all levels This book is an entirely new approach to understanding living systems and will help set the agenda for biology in the coming century, Throughout its history ecology has largely been a descriptive science Scientists are in need of a theoretical framework that will assist in the understanding of observed patterns and will serve as a predictive tool Since ecological systems are dynamic and spatially extended it is particularly important to understand the processes underlying spatiotemporal patterns br This book reviews one of the newest and most important areas of theoretical ecology the study of spatiotemporal dynamics by means of a spatially explicit approximation that allows the investigation of the effects of real space, Can physics be an appropriate framework for the understanding of ecological science Most ecologists would probably agree that there is little relation between the complexity of natural ecosystems and the simplicity of any example derived from Newtonian physics Though ecologists have long been interested in concepts originally developed by statistical physicists and later applied to explain everything from why stock markets crash to why rivers develop particular branching patterns applying such concepts to ecosystems has remained a challenge br br br br i Self Organization in Complex Ecosystems i is the first book to clearly synthesize what we have learned about the usefulness of tools from statistical physics in ecology Ricard Sole and Jordi Bascompte provide a comprehensive introduction to complex systems theory and ask do universal laws shape the structure of ecosystems at least at some scales They offer the most compelling array of theoretical evidence to date of the potential of nonlinear ecological interactions to generate nonrandom self organized patterns at all levels br br br Tackling classic ecological questions from population dynamics to biodiversity to macroevolution the book s novel presentation of theories and data shows the power of statistical physics and complexity in ecology i Self Organization in Complex Ecosystems i will be a staple resource for years to come for ecologists interested in complex systems theory as well as mathematicians and physicists interested in ecology, Phase transitions changes between different states of organization in a complex system have long helped to explain physics concepts such as why water freezes into a solid or boils to become a gas How might phase transitions shed light on important problems in biological and ecological complex systems Exploring the origins and implications of sudden changes in nature and society i Phase Transitions i examines different dynamical behaviors in a broad range of complex systems Using a compelling set of examples from gene networks and ant colonies to human language and the degradation of diverse ecosystems the book illustrates the power of simple models to reveal how phase transitions occur br br br Introductory chapters provide the critical concepts and the simplest mathematical techniques required to study phase transitions In a series of example driven chapters Ricard Sole shows how such concepts and techniques can be applied to the analysis and prediction of complex system behavior including the origins of life viral replication epidemics language evolution and the emergence and breakdown of societies br br br Written at an undergraduate mathematical level this book provides the essential theoretical tools and foundations required to develop basic models to explain collective phase transitions for a wide variety of ecosystems
