9780671477462: Mastering Change: The Key to Business Success
From Publishers Weekly:

Many of us equate ecology with environmental issues, but the subject is far more complex. Ehrlich (The Population Bomb has here written a lucid introduction to this wide-ranging science, which he considers the most important aspect of human culture. Defining ecology as the study of the relationships of plants and animals to each other and to their environments, he guides us through its component parts: physiology, populations, behavior, survival strategies; biogeography, community and ecosystem ecology. Ehrlich discusses species diversity, predation, mutualism and competition among organisms, and each topic is illustrated by examples from his own studies. If ecology is perceived as the basis of the other life sciences, one can comprehend the importance of understanding how nature works; Ehrlich's book is an excellent tool for that understanding. Illustrations not seen by PW. Macmillan Book Clubs alternate.

From Library Journal:

Ehrlich, author of Extinction and other works, uses his extensive research on butterflies as a springboard into a thorough overview of the science of ecology. Avoiding technical jargon, he probes ecological principles from the perspective of physiology, behavior, evolution, population studies, predation, and competition. Fascinating plant and animal life examples provide concrete demonstrations of ecological theories. Aside from the work on butterfiles, too many of these examples recapitulate material found in ecology textbooks to interest those already familiar with the field. As an introduction for the general reader, however, this clear, accurate book admirably achieves its goal. Highly recommended. Frank Reiser, Biology Dept., Nassau Comm. Coll., Garden City, N.Y.
