Product Description

Review


On the first edition

‘The freshness of approach and the breadth and depth of coverage make most of the opposition seem a rather stale and restricted diet by comparison….All ecology teachers and students would do well to sample this nouvelle cuisine.’ [Nature]

On the second edition

‘It is better than the first edition in dealing with communities and ecosystems, and its treatment of population biology, broadly defined, is superb. Presentation – both prose and graphics – is efficient and clear without being prosaic or simplistic. Remarkably free of dogma, Begon et al. offer the incompleteness of ecology in an explicit and inviting way.

When asked which text they judged best or a sophomore level general ecology course for biology students, Begon et al. was chosen by 8 out of 10.’ [Ecology] --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Ecology on CD–ROM is a multimedia complement to the bestselling textbook by the same authors. Each topic is presented as a Tutorial specially adapted from the chapter in the book and assisted by a diverse collection of media: video clips; animations; photographs and graphic artwork; interactive models and access to seminal texts. Browsing and searching is facilitated through the Media Galleries and the searchable glossary that hyperlinks to relevant Tutorial topics.

Format: Paperback
I used this book during my degree and found it to be an excellent textbook. It is well set out, easy to find things in the index, although some topics are widely spread throughout the whole book and it can be a bit difficult to track down. Overall an excellent textbook that you will want to keep!

This book provides all the upto-date basic information an ecologist could require, it also gives good references for further reading. An essential course text for anyone doing a degree in the area of biological sciences or just have an interest in the processes occuring ecology.

This book is one of the best you'll find for the study of this field of the ecology, with clear examples and both basic and more advanced explanations. There is a newer edition, but if you can't afford it right now, this is the best option then.

This book is informative and indepth on subjects that are useful for course work on animal science degree courses. Recommended at a fraction of the actual cost.
