This introductory text for high school students delves into the ecological topics that young people relate to:
  • Global warming
  • Deforestation
  • Water supplies
  • How communities and ecosystems interact, and much more.

Photographs, drawings and charts, and reviews help students come to grips with complex issues. A variety of labs and activities build interest as they simultaneously develop thinking skills. Understanding Basic Ecological Concepts is ideal for non-science students.
