Summary

Peter Stiling, co-author of Biologyby Brooker et al., has written a new first edition ecology text. The main goal in creating a new ecology text is to show how ecology is important in understanding global change. The book's main aim is to teach the basic principles of ecology and to relate these principles to many of the Earth's ecological problems.
