Ecological Principles and Environmental Issues

Front Cover
Prentice Hall, 2000 - Science - 303 pages
Ecological Principles and Environmental Issues provides an introduction to core ecology through key environmental issues such as biodiversity, sustainable agriculture, global warming and pollution.
Taking a distinctive approach, Peter Jarvis starts each chapter with a case study and uses this as a springboard to present core theory, while taking care to introduce ecological principles in a logical sequence throughout the book.
This book is aimed at first year students taking Ecology or Biogeography as part of Biology, Environmental Science and Geography degrees. It will also be useful for M.Sc. courses in Environmental Science and Environmental Management, for those without a background in Ecology.
