Summary

This is one of our standard textbooks which sells well to the upper level undergraduate market for community ecology and population and community ecology courses. This book is the market leader in the field with lecturers in the US and UK both preferring this text to any of the competition. Published in 1999, it has sold 4695 copies to the end of July but its MAT has now dropped to around 650 as it is getting out of date. Community ecology is a dynamic field with lots of recent advances and Peter Morin is planning on bringing the book right up to date, revising each chapter carefully, adding new material and updating all the references. Two chapters, Food Webs and Causes and Consequences of Diversity will be extensively revised to account for rapid recent changes in these areas. He is also intending to put together a CD ROM / website that will include some working models. This will help explain the modelling sections which are the hardest for the students to understand and be a great teaching resource.
