About this book

The Effective Ecologist covers the stuff that no-one told you about at university – how to develop your office-related and business skills to succeed in your career as a professional ecologist.

The Effective Ecologist shows you how to be more effective in your role, providing you with the skills and effective behaviours within the workplace that will enable your development as an ecologist. It explains what it means to be effective in the workplace and describes positive behaviours and how they can be adopted. It contains the skills needed for effective communication, organising projects, advice on planning, reporting and meetings and provides you with everything you need for a brilliant and successful career.

In a clearly written and honest account full of real life examples, the author leaves no stone unturned as he describes how making small changes in your behaviour can have a positive impact upon your performance and how you are perceived in your working environment. Essential reading for anyone commencing or already pursuing a career in ecology who wants to perform at the highest level. In addition The Effective Ecologist will be of great interest to team managers, business leaders and those responsible for the development of staff as a point of reference and guidance for their team.

Media reviews

"[...] The text is carefully set out to make it easy to follow, the illustrations by Joan Punteney are both humorous and delightfully detailed, and there is a short but valuable Glossary. I commend it to all ecologists seeking effective communication with everyone else. Wildlife will also benefit greatly."
– Philip Jackson, BTO book reviews
