Population dynamics in fluctuating environments

The papers of Dan Cohen are still classic in this area, and well worth reading. One topic that we did not consider here is the situation in which there is both individual and global variation. Such a situation arises, for example, when plants experience both microsite variation as individuals and environmental variation (e.g. weather) across the population. Rees et a/. (2000) develop methods for such a mix of microsite and temporal variation. Provine's book about Sewall Wright

(Provine 1986) is well worth the read. Stearns (2000) has a lovely discussion of Daniel Bernoulli's contributions to these ideas (Bernoulli (1738/1954).
