The development of population ecology owes much to demography and actuarial life tion ecology is important in conservation biology, especially in the development of population viability analysis (PVA) which makes it possible to predict the long-term probability of a species persisting in a given habitat patch. Although population ecology is a subfield of .

      Population ecology has traditionally sought to understand how a single population changes over time, given its initial size and composition. Population growth depends on birth, death and growth rates, which are assumed to be either fixed quantities or functions only of the population size and composition of the species in question.

By Virginia Gray and David Lowery. Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, p. $ - Volume 91 Issue 3 - Author: Jeffrey M. Berry. The Population Ecology of Interest Representation. Description.

By examining how populations of interest groups are comprised, this work fills an important gap between existing theories of the origins of individual interest groups and studies of interest-group influence. The population ecology model of interest communities developed here builds on insights first developed in population biology and later employed by organizational ecologists.

This book should be of interest to political scientists working on lobbying and interest groups and social scientists interested in the development of organizations.

'The Organization Ecology of Interest Communities is one of the most important books on interest group systems ever written. The papers in this excellent volume represent that work's ever-expanding impact and chart new directions for population ecology research.

Every student of interest groups will need to read this volume carefully.'Brand: Darren Halpin. This changed with the publication of Gray and Lowery’s The Population Ecology of Interest Representation in (also see: Lowery and Gray ).

Inspired by core theories of population biology and organization ecology, they outlined a theory that both accounted for observed variations in the density and diversity of interest communities in the American states and suggested ways in which these emergent population Cited by: 4.

The bias of interest group communities is an important thread of this research: why are some interests better organized than others.

The model's central premise is that it is the environmental forces confronting interest organizations that most directly shape the contours of interest populations.
