Review

“Begon, Townsend and Harper has been the standard advanced textbook in ecology for nearly 20 years. I greatly welcome this fourth edition, which maintains the book’s position at the forefront of the discipline.” Professor Sir John Lawton, Chairman, Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, and formerly Chief Executive of the UK Natural Environment Research Council <!––end––> "Now in its fourth edition, this text will continue to be recognized as a forerunner in the science of ecology; it is very comprehensive, exploring ecological concepts with relevant field and laboratory studies, enriched by clear examples and illustrations." Journal of Biological Education “With remarkable clarity and insight, these gifted authors lay the evolutionary foundation of the discipline and then build the superstructure of Ecology, layer by layer. This is a complete reworking of the earlier version, a lucid synthesis sprinkled with clear examples. My colleagues and I have used this text to teach ecology for more than 20 years, and not surprisingly it has been recognized as the leading text in the field; this new version guarantees it will remain in pole position for many years to come.” Peter Hudson, Pennsylvania State University “Begon, Townsend and Harper’s Ecology has been the cornerstone text for teaching ecology for almost two decades. Its comprehensive breadth and depth provides details on ecological concepts supplemented with relevant field and laboratory studies. Ecology will remain an essential text for students and practioners alike for many years to come.” Michael Bonsall, Oxford University “ Ecology: From Individual, to Ecosystems is unparalleled among ecology texts for its breadth of coverage of contemporary ecology and for its clear presentation of even the more complex topics. The coverage of population ecology is superb, and the presentation of all topics is enriched both by extremely clear illustrations and a rich use of examples of human relationships with the environment. It should be read by all aspiring ecologists and the professors who teach them.” Marcel Holyoak, University of California, Davis "...Overall, this text has continued to earn its dominance in the market...For those for whom Essentials is too basic this is the text to read at the next level. It′s comprehensive coverage and wide range of examples make it an essential purchase for basic/advanced ecology education." TENews, September 2005 Review of the previous edition “arguably the best general textbook in ecology currently on the market” Animal Ecology 1999 “This monumental book is obligatory reading for all ecologists. It has an engaging style, is user–friendly and is a fount of information and scientific rigour. It will take population biology, broadly defined, comfortably into the next century.” Journal of Ecology 1997 “The language and structure of this textbook is quite comprehensive, making it the ideal book for undergraduates making their first steps in ecology.” Journal of Animal Ecology 1997

First Sentence
From our definition of ecology in the Preface, and even from a layman's understanding of the term, it is clear that at the heart of ecology lies the relationship between organisms and their environments. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book ! 6 April 2013
By Becky
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book if your studying an animal related degree i.e. Wildlife Conservation Like myself. unlike most ecology books this puts it in a easy way but scientific way. whereas most books are either too hard expecting you no the subject or too easy and quite patronizing, this is has a good balance between not to hard and not to easy. and this wrote in a scientific format :)
