Introduction

Abstract

A population is a group of individuals of the same species that have a high probability of interacting with each other. A simple example would be trout in a lake, or moose on Isle Royale, although in many cases the boundaries delineating a population are not as clear cut. Population biology is simply the study of biological populations.
