About this book

Advanced textbook. Contents: Part 1: Basic Ecological Principles and Concepts; Part 2: The Habitat Approach; Part 3: Applications and Technology. Odum also sought for the textbook to fulfil three functions: on macroscopic ecology as it relates to human affairs; as an undergraduate/graduate textbook; and finally as a comprehensive reference work on principles, environments, and ecological technology.
