This richly illustrated third edition provides a thorough training in practical mathematical biology and shows how exciting mathematical challenges can arise from a genuinely interdisciplinary involvement with the biosciences. It has been extensively updated and extended to cover much of the growth of mathematical biology.
From the reviews: ""This book, a classical text in mathematical biology, cleverly combines mathematical tools with subject area sciences."--SHORT BOOK REVIEWS
Mathematical biology, 3rd edition is a richly illustrated text which provides a thorough training in practical mathematical biology and shows how exciting and new mathematical challenges can arise from a genuinely interdisciplinary involvement with the biosciences. It also shows how mathematics can contribute to biology and why physical scientists should get involved - and how to do so. This third edition has been extensively updated and extended in an attempt to cover much of the growth of mathematical biology and the diversity of biomedical applications of mathematical modelling.
