About this book

For 35 years, the Bureau of Animal Population at Oxford University was a mecca for ecologists from around the world. Created and led by Charles Elton, this small research institute exerted a tremendous influence on the development of the science of animal ecology. This is an anecdotal and informal history of the Bureau from its founding in 1932 to its demise with the retirement of Elton in 1967, written by a graduate of the Bureau.
