Bio ecology

Author, Clements is best known for his theory of community development or plant succession. The authors were brought together in this task of attempting to correlate the fields of plant and animal ecology by the common belief that it would tend to advance the science of ecology in general.

s 444Pages

Diversity of Ecosystems

Aim of this book is to bring out a general view on the function of ecosystems, modelling, sampling strategies, invading species, the response of organisms to modifications, the carbon dynamics, the mathematical models and theories that can be applied in diverse conditions.

Author(s):

Dictionary of ecology

This practical dictionary is for the use of students, teachers, and investigators in ecology and related fields such as range management, forestry, wildlife, conservation, agronomy, and limnology. The aim of this dictionary is to fill the need for definitions of many new terms that have come into usage during the past thirty years and also to include many of the old terms that are used in current literature.
