Media reviews

...this work would be useful in fields such as soil science, physical anthropology, biogeography, botany, and zoology. Fans of the first edition will love the second; those in need of a first-rate biology dictionary would do well to acquire this one. Choice "...if you're looking for a readable reference, useful for academics and non-academics alike, covering not only subtleties of language but a wide range of information relevant to the practising ecologist--you've found it!" Canadian Society of Environmental Biologists
