    BIG IDEAS SIMPLY EXPLAINED


    Foreword by Tony Juniper


    With concern about the environment at the top of the world agenda, there has never been a better time to get to grips with the theories that drive ecology. Since the earliest times, observers of the natural environment have sought to make sense of the world around them, by classifying nature to impose a sense of order and establish the relationships between different organisms, both living and extinct. But the scientific discipline of ecology—the study of how organisms interact with each other and their environment, and the structure and function of ecosystems—is relatively young. It encompasses the work of many disciplines, including biologists, chemists, climatologists, geographers, mathematicians, physicists, and zoologists, and builds on the views of influential figures both past and present.

    Why is greater biological diversity desirable? How was the hole in the ozone layer discovered? Is another mass extinction on the way? Throughout history, people have tried to order the living world and understand how it works. As our influence on the planet grows, answering these profound questions is becoming more and more pressing.

    Written in plain English, The Ecology Book is packed with short, pithy explanations of more than 90 key ideas.Step-by-step diagrams untangle tricky theories, illuminating quotes make the ideas and discoveries memorable, and witty illustrations enhance and play without understanding of the science.

    Whether you're new to the subject, an avid student of the living world, or simply concerned about what we're doing to the planet, you'll find plenty in this book to satisfy your natural curiosity.

    Hardcover edition.
