A unique explanation of how to use fractal geometry in ecology and biology. Beginning with the foundations of measurement in Euclidian geometry, this book progresses from analogues in the geometry of random fractals to illustrative applications spanning the natural sciences. Designed to enable students and researchers to master the methods of this hot current topic, it: Includes a toolbox of user-ready computer programs Provides a blend of motivation, geometry and detailed applications Presents detailed case studies in ecosystem patterns and fluctuations of small populations It is the only guide to using fractals in these areas and will prove an essential source for all natural scientists interested in working with fractals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'take the novitiate in a given discipline through the subtleties of fractal dimension, random fractals, Hurst exponents and so on, in a way that illuminates the field of study, thereby making it a working tool for the would be practitioner ... an excellent book from which even those that have been working in this area for a long time have something to learn. I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in how to apply these new and exciting techniques to the understanding of natural phenomena.' Bruce J. West, University of North Texas, Bulletin of Mathematical Biology
