What book would you recommend me to study:

  • the dynamics of metapopulations,
  • the structure of metapopulations,
  • the evolution in structured metapopulations?

I am not looking for an introduction but for a book that offers good and extensive mathematical formulations.

Probably the best source to start would be Ilkka Hanksi's work, you can find a full list here: http://www.helsinki.fi/science/metapop/People/IlkkaPub2.htm. The seminal work would be "Ecology, Genetics and Evolution of Metapopulations" It gives a strong mathematical treatment
