About this book

Knowledge of the natural world and the way humans interact with the planet's ecosystems is increasingly important in understanding the applied problems that are so recurrent in the media today. This important new textbook by Professor Charles Krebs is written for non-ecology majors, to introduce a conceptual understanding of theoretical ecological principles.

Professor Krebs briefly covers the history of ecology and the general approaches of the scientific method using examples to demonstrate how it works in real situations. Brief histories of individuals who contributed major ideas are also included. Each chapter includes an introductory section, an "In the News" section, plus details of key concepts and learning objectives. Krebs presents open-ended questions after each chapter to facilitate discussion about the ecological issues raised in the chapter and in detailed case studies; he covers field and laboratory studies and uses perspectives from around the globe.
