Product Description


On the second edition.

To those familiar with the first addition of Begon & Mortimer s short text on population ecology, it will come as no surprise to learn that the second addition, like the first addition, is a gem. What may surprise is that the second addition represents a significant improvement of what was already an excellent textbook It is difficult to criticize a book that has achieved such admirable balance between empiricism vs. theory and unitary vs. modular organisms, all within a compact, inexpensive volume. Ecology

I doubt that there are many texts that portray the whole field of population ecology as successfully or concisely as does this book. It can be warmly recommended Australian Journal of Ecology

A zoologist and botanist have made an extremely well coordinated effort in presenting the population ecology of both animals and plants under one title. This textbook reads so smoothly that the reader soon forgets that it was written by two authors instead of one. The concise writing style and liberal use of graphs, tables, and diagrams make this textbook pleasurable to read and easy to understand. This book is accessible reading to anyone interested in population ecology. Canadian Field– Naturalist

From the Back Cover

This successful text examines the ecological processes that determine the size and structure of a population, and demonstrates that there are many fundamental principles that apply to populations of both animals and plants. The authors have sought to involve the text in areas where particular progress has been made and consolidated. The third edition therefore addresses the problem of the detection of chaos, buried sea–banks and herbivorey implants and looks more closely at the role of spatial scale in two–species interactions. It also introduces a major new section on the concept of the meta–population. The book is designed to be readily understood by undergraduates with little or no previous knowledge of the subject, and also to stimulate wider debate and discussion.
