Summary

The first edition of Krohne's GENERAL ECOLOGY is known and respected as one of the best texts available for mathematical modeling in the general ecology course. Accessible and well-balanced in its treatment of populations, communities, and ecosystems, the book has exceptionally strong coverage of evolutionary ecology. The second edition maintains its focus on making the subject accessible to undergraduate students without trivializing the concepts, and has been thoroughly checked for accuracy. With a completely new design to enhance its visual appeal, the art has been elevated to the same high standard as the text.
