An authoritative overview of the concepts and applications of biological demographyThis book provides a comprehensive introduction to biodemography, an exciting interdisciplinary field that unites the natural science of biology with the social science of human demography. Biodemography is an essential resource for demographers, epidemiologists, gerontologists, and health professionals as well as ecologists, population biologists, entomologists, and conservation biologists. This accessible and innovative book is also ideal for the classroom.James Carey and Deborah Roach cover everything from baseline demographic concepts to biodemographic applications, and present models and equations in discrete rather than continuous form to enhance mathematical accessibility. They use a wealth of real-world examples that draw from data sets on both human and nonhuman species and offer an interdisciplinary approach to demography like no other, with topics ranging from kinship theory and family demography to reliability engineering, tort law, and demographic disasters such as the Titanic and the destruction of Napoleon's Grande Armée.Provides the first synthesis of demography and biologyCovers baseline demographic models and concepts such as Lexis diagrams, mortality, fecundity, and population theoryFeatures in-depth discussions of biodemographic applications like harvesting theory and mark-recaptureDraws from data sets on species ranging from fruit flies and plants to elephants and humansUses a uniquely interdisciplinary approach to demography, bringing together a diverse range of concepts, models, and applicationsIncludes informative "biodemographic shorts," appendixes on data visualization and management, and more than 150 illustrations of models and equations
