9780470778074: Biological Diversity: Exploiters and Exploited

Biological Diversity takes a fresh, innovative approach to the teaching of biodiversity. Rather than detailing and cataloguing the major taxa and their evolutionary relationships, the authors have selected 18 groups of organisms and used these as a framework in which to discuss the species and their interactions with man and each other. There is a strong narrative theme throughout – the exploited and the exploiters - and, in many cases, there is emphasis on the historical context. A wide range of organisms are covered, from the unicellular to birds and mammals and with an equal consideration of plants and animals. Species have been chosen for their ability to best illustrate particular biological principles, and for their strong interaction with other species.

After an introduction the book is divided into two parts: ‘Exploited’ and ‘Exploiters’. Each of the chapters, although linked to each other, forms a stand-alone essay. They are scientifically rigorous, up-to-date and do not shy away from addressing some controversial issues. Chapters  have’ text boxes’ highlighting important issues and concepts, lists of further reading and references. In addition to tables and figures the book has a selection of original illustrations drawn by leading artist Steven Appleby.

This fresh approach will appeal to all those interested in the biological sciences, and aims to be accessible to people with a diversity of backgrounds. It will prove particularly useful to biology students, enabling them to get to grips with important biological principles and concepts that underpin the diversity of life, and the interrelationship of humans with other groups of organisms.

Review:

“Overall, this is a collection of papers that are realistic yet optimistic about the future and proposes positive solutions to the many problems of current fisheries.”  (The Quarterly Review of Biology, 1 March2013)

"In conclusion, this sizeable book is worth every page. It demands slow, steady reading. The writing style is very easy for even a non-science student to read and understand, especially those concerned with environmental conservation and protection. The figures are helpful with caricatures drawn to make the reading more fun. And the best thing about the book is that it satisfies all the related queries one may have about the topic, from its history to politics to biology to physics." (International Journal of Environmental Studies, 21 February 2012)

"I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed by it, and feel it should find a place in the non-fiction best-seller lists." (Biodivers Conserv, 2011)

"Paul Hatcher and Nick Battey have clearly taken the significance of this role to heart, putting a great deal of thought into how to engage their target audience; namely under-graduates wishing to learn about their topic." (Taylor & Francis, 24 November 2011)

"The figures are helpful with caricatures drawn to make the reading more fun. And the best thing about the book is that it satisfies all the related queries one may have about the topic, from its history to politics to biology to physics." (International Journal of Environmental Sciences, 1 February 2012)

"This title is appropriate for undergraduate students in many disciplines, including biology. It will also be useful for readers interested in the ways human interact with other species. Summing Up: Recommended. All readership levels." (Choice, 1 November 2011)
