About this book

Bridges the gap between ecology and natural resource management and in particular, focuses on the discipline of plant ecology as a foundation for vegetation and wildlife management. It describes how concepts and approaches used by ecologists to study communities and ecosystems can be applied to their management.

'This book should be read and studied by natural resource managers, by graduate and advanced undergraduate students, who are familiar with fundamental ecological principles and who wish to use ecological knowledge as a basis for the management of ecosystems.' International Journal of Environmental Studies '! a very distinctive and worthwhile contribution.' Journal of Environmental Planning and Management
