About this book

A review of the holistic or `big-picture' principles of ecology, by one of the world's most distinguished ecologists. This edition, an updated edition of Ecology and Our Endangered Life-Support Systems, incorporates the latest concepts and research in the discipline. Odum argues that without healthy life-support systems (such as atmosphere, forests and oceans) to support and buffer human industrial activities, there cannot be a healthy economy or a high quality of life.


Contents

The life-support environment; levels of organization; the ecosystem; energetics; material cycles and physical conditions of existence; population biology; development and evolution; major ecosystem types of the world; the transition from youth to maturity.
