About this book

Documents how ecology has emerged from being a predominantly descriptive subject to one with a more substantial theoretical framework underpoinned by evidence from experiments. In this advance, improved technology has undoubtedly played a most significant role - few ecologists could operate without a computer to hand and many branches of the subject require very sophisticated instrumentation.

Paperback re-issue, originally pulished by Blackwell in 1989.
