About this book

New edition of the leading textbook on monitoring ecological change.

The state of ecosystems, biological communities and species are continuously changing as a result of both natural processes and the activities of humans. In order to detect and understand these changes, effective ecological monitoring programmes are required. This book offers an introduction to the topic and provides both a rationale for monitoring and a practical guide to the techniques available. Written in a nontechnical style, the book covers the relevance and growth of ecological monitoring, the organizations and programmes involved, the science of ecological monitoring and an assessment of methods in practice, including many examples from monitoring programmes around the world. Building on the success of the first edition, this new edition has been fully revised and updated with two additional chapters covering the relevance of monitoring to the reporting of the state of the environment, and the growth of community based ecological monitoring.

Media reviews
'! excellent and well written book ! the second edition of Monitoring Ecological Change is the equal of the first in accessibility, clarity and comprehensiveness. ! This highly technical and often complex subject matter is rendered clear and accessible ! this is a timely and useful addition to the literature. Spellerberg has managed to improve on an already impressive piece of work and I am sure it will be read, reread, and used by undergraduate and postgraduate students, practitioners, and fellow academics.'
