The study of the behaviour of plants, both in their natural environment and also in habitats substantially influenced by man, involves a field of enquiry rich in biological phenomena and problems. The ground work and basic principles of plant ecology are treated in the elementary book, which is developed out of Sir Arthur Tansley's Introduction to Plant Ecology. Besides consideration of the structure and types of vegetation, there are sections on simple methods of investigation and on the factors of the habitat; also discussed are processes in the ecosystem such as the cycling of nutrients and energy flow.
