Book Title: Stochastic population models in ecology and epidemiology

Author: Maurice S. Bartlett

Book Description:

Maurice Bartlett (1910-2002) made numerous contributions to statistics, probability theory, and theoretical biology and epidemiology. I chose this book because it reflects Bartlett's seminal work during the 1950s and 60s on stochastic population processes. In this work he identified many key issues--such as epidemic cycles, critical community sizes and demographic stochasticity--that are central to my own research on infectious disease ecology.
