This second edition in just two years offers a considerably revised second chapter, in which information behavior replaces analogies to purely physical systems, as well as practical applications of the authors' theory. Attention is also given to a hierarchical theory of ecosystem behavior, taking note of constraints on local ecosystem members resulting from their own histories. Copious references, frequent diagrams, charts, tables, and formulas. Paper edition, $19.95. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
