I’m a sophomore studying biology and have previously worked with songbirds in multiple locations. I wouldn’t say that I find my work easy but I do find it to not be as intellectually demanding as say physics or mathematics. In my freshman year I stumbled upon websites of some groups involved in modelling collective behavior and animal movement, but couldn’t focus on that at the time as I had other things lined up. So now I’m relatively free and would like to explore the world of theoretical ecology.
Can you guys recommend me some textbooks or even the subjects of mathematics or physics which I should study to understand what’s going.
