About this book

Much needed overview of this rapidly changing field. An influx of ideas and techniques both from other areas of biology and from within the subject itself has resulted in numerous recent advances, including the increased recognition of the relationships between ecological and evolutionary theory, renewed vigour in the study of ecological communities over geologic timescales, increased understanding of biogeographical patterns, and new mathematical approaches to studying the form and structure of plants and animals.
