Begon, Townsend and Harper's Ecology has long been regarded
as the definitive textbook on all aspects of ecology.
This new edition continues to provide a comprehensive treatment of the subject
from the first principles of ecology to a vivid reflection of our understanding of ecology in the 21st century.
Thoroughly revised and updated, this fourth edition includes:
- three new chapters on applied ecology,
reflecting a rigorous, scientific approach to the ecological problems now facing the human race
- discussion of over 750 new studies, updating the text throughout
- an updated, user-friendly design with margin notes and chapter summaries that serve as study aids
- a dedicated website at www.blackwellpublishing.com/begon
The resulting textbook is easy to use, lucid and up-to-date,
and is the essential reference for all students whose degree program includes ecoloqy
and for practicing ecologists.
