About this book

One of the most prominent American biological scientists of his day, Stephen Forbes (1844-1930) is now recognised as an early champion of the emerging field of ecology. Croker presents Forbes's work as a case study in the transition from nineteenth-century natural history to twentieth-century ecological science.
