From the Inside Flap:


"A long-needed sourcebook to the science so pertinent to the future, providing rich and eminently readable entries on all aspects of ecology--so valuable that it is hard to imagine how anyone managed without it."--Thomas E. Lovejoy, President, Heinz Center for Science, Economics and the Environment


"This is a synoptic survey of our still-advancing understanding of ecological science. It first deals with fundamental principles, ranging from individual plants or animals through populations and ecosystems to entire landscapes. These principles are then applied in insightful discussions of conservation biology, ecosystem services, and ultimately the sustainable management of our planet's biosphere. The 'autecology' of this book is itself remarkable, as tight editing has drawn together contributions from more than one hundred individual authors into a unified whole. In short, the book is a timely and important one."--Robert M. May, University of Oxford


"Essential reading for biologists, social scientists, and all interested in a holistic view of the world, this marvelous collection presents the flourishing state of ecology today and its even more exciting prospects for the future."--Peter H. Raven, President, Missouri Botanical Garden


"The Princeton Guide to Ecology is an exciting development because it brings together in one place accessible articles written by the leading experts across the important field of ecology. Ecology has grown and repeatedly subdivided in recent years, but now we have it back together again with this enormously useful framework and compendium."--James Gustave Speth, Dean, Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies
