Product Description:

This engaging, conversational book presents a comprehensive overview of all aspects of ecology, including evolution, ecosystems, theory, practical applications, plants, and animals. Ecology and Field Biology, Fifth Edition features major shifts in the presentation of topics: two chapters on soil have been incorporated into one, while other various topics, such as acid deposition and global change, have been integrated into appropriate chapters. New issues discussed in this fifth edition include the importance of statistical power tests in ecological studies, the effects of impoundments on river ecology, intraguild predation, and more. Also featured in this edition are the addition of new pedagogical aids, a four-color design, and an entirely rewritten chapter on ecological experimentation and models.

From the Back Cover:

This book presents a comprehensive overview of all aspects of ecology, including evolution, ecosystems theory, practical applications, plants, animals, biogeochemical cycles, and global change. A new chapter discusses global environmental change, human impacts on the global carbon cycle, and the possible implications for the global climate system. Six "Ecological Application Essays" demonstrate to students the real world relevance of ecological concepts. For example, Part V, Population Interactions, discusses how a lack of mushrooms helped power the Industrial Revolution. Reflecting current changes in the field of ecology, the new edition incorporates more discussion of the evolutionary perspective on ecological systems. For anyone interested in ecology.
