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.
Edward Clements and Victor E. Shelford

This Introductory Ecology
Module explains the hierarchical structure of ecology-species, populations,
communities, and ecosystems. Each lecture will focus on a key ecological
principle then provide applied examples to further demonstrate the concept.
