Thirty essays on ecological and genetic factors governing population growth and decline, and internal behavior, and on influence of population characteristics on disease expression and spread. Draws mainly on studies of infrahuman organisms but considers human social behavior as an aspect of population dynamics, and human disease. The chapters on genetic biochemistry and inheritance mechanisms are gratuitous in this collection; their content surely is intellectual equipment that the likely readers of the other chapters will bring with them. The collection lacks strong continuity and has the character of review papers on related topics. Author and subject indexes.
