Some statements from reviewers:
I just have some overall comments on this wonderful book. I have read many papers by Arild Gautestad over
more than 20 years, and I learned something new with each paper I read. But now I am extremely happy to
have had the chance to read his manuscript, which puts more than two decades worth of highly original and
important thinking together in one place. I enjoyed reading it very much, even though I have barely started
to absorb many of the ideas, which goes far beyond Dr. Gautestad’s papers.
Dr. Don DeAngelis (Research Professor - University of Miami, physicist/biologist).
First of all let me say that I think this is a really beautiful manuscript, and the discussion provided
is a substantial contribution to the field of movement ecology (and other).
Dr. Daniel Campos Moreno (Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, physicist).
I have been satisfied with brownian motion frameworks, but primarily because I think it is better than
doing nothing at all. ... However, many of my field colleagues are generally hesitant to use
brownian models as they dont realistically reflect an animal's movements. So I can say that this a concern of the field community.
Dr. Yannis Papastamatiou (Research Fellow - Scottish Oceans Institute, University of St Andrews, wildlife ecologist)
