Product Overview

First Ecology: Ecological Principles and Environmental Issues provides a critical and evaluative introduction to the science of ecology. Alan Beeby and Anne-Maria Brennan present a succinct survey of ecology, describing and explaining the relationship between living organisms and their environment.

In sequence, First Ecology develops the core themes of ecology at each level of organization - subcellular, population, ecosystem, landscape, and planetary. Understanding this hierarchy - and the interplay between these levels - is crucial to the environmental decisions our species faces at the start of the twenty-first century.
