Ecotherms in changing environments 2014-2020, probably never to be published. Supported by an OPUS (Opportunities for Understanding through Synthesis) grant from the Division of Environmental Biology at NSF (2015-18), I wrote a book synthesizing my work over the last 35+ years on salmonids, southern ocean krill, and insect parasitoids and tephritid fruit flies. My goal was to show how state dependent behavioral and life history theory, as implemented by stochastic dynamic programming intercollates with other methods (e.g. population dynamics or quantitative genetics models) used for studying organismal response to changing environments.

After receiving critical but very helpful comments from reviewers at Princeton University Press, I realized that the book had missed the mark. In retrospect, my goals were too ambitious -- I wanted to show how many of the different methods used to study response to environmental change inter-collate with state dependent life history. Since most readers would not be expert in most of the methods, I used simple models for purposes of illustration but now realize that doing so would leave most readers unsatisfied. But I simply did not have space or time to get into really detailed models of particular problems (unlike my other books).

I was knew this was the right decision when I read in Mark Nepo's wonderful book Seven Thousand Ways to Listen the following (on page 15 of the chapter called Beyond Our Awareness in the Kobo e-reader version): For me, it was listening to a fundamental uneasiness about being misunderstood that led me to pull a book from publication. I've worked with countless editors through the years and the tiger in my mind was roaring What are you doing?! Make it work!!...I couldn't know that listening to that uneasiness and following it would awaken the next phase of my authenticity.

The book had ten chapters, some of which can be converted to stand alone manuscripts, my current goal is to post those that I will not submit as papers here and put the papers in the publications section of this web site. (I am happy to share a copy of the submitted manuscript with anyone who asks, but you need to write to me.)

But to begin, there are two that will not work as stand alone journal articles and one that can be just as effective as an unpublished document, so I am leaving them permanently:

Working in Pasteur's Quadrant, one is motivated by important applied problems and seeks fundamental understanding. Check out Donald Stokes's book by the same name. If you use this in a seminar or read it with your group, I would like to know how it worked.
