ISBN13: 978-0805348309
ISBN10: 0805348301

Summary: The newly revised Sixth Edition of Elements of Ecology maintains its engaging, reader-friendly style as it explains the basic principles of ecology. The text is updated to include new chapters on current ecological topics (metapopulations and conservation ecology); new part introductions to connect the subfields of ecology; and new in-text features to encourage students to interpret the ecological data, research, and models used throughout the text. Abundant, accessi
ble examples illustrate and clarify the text's emphasis on understanding ecological patterns within an evolutionary framework. Additionally, the text employs new study questions requiring students to make connections and apply their knowledge.

Each chapter includes at least one Quantifying Ecology box explaining equations and statistical techniques with step-by-step examples designed to teach students how to use and interpret data. The expanded companion website (www.ecologyplace.com) includes GRAPHit!, MODELit!, and QUANTIFYit!, new quantitative exercises to help students further master and apply math skills.

New Researcher Profiles will introduce students to primary literature by featuring the next generation of ecologists working on innovative research. These in-depth case studies follow a series of experiments that serve to illuminate the text's core concepts.

Features
  • Researcher Profiles describe experimental case-studies in detail.
  • Quantifying Ecology boxes clearly explain mathematical aspects of ecology and their relevance.
  • Ecological Issues boxes describe how humans influence the study of ecology.
  • Content synthesizing part introductions, chapter opening outlines, concept modules, summaries, study questions, further readings, and a glossary of more than 400 key terms all enhance student understanding and retention.
  • The student website is integrated with the text and includes the interactive quantitative tools GRAPHit!, MODELit!, and QUANTIFYit!, as well as animations, quiz questions, flashcards, news and weblinks, Ecological Perspectives essays, and more. A subscription to the website is included with each new copy of the text.
