The Encyclopedia of Ecology and Environmental Management

 Ecology has become so wide ranging that it is hard for any one person to keep track of all the diverse concepts and jargon used inn the separate sub-disciplines. It is especially difficult for those applying ecology to keep abreast of the principles of the subject, and for those working on the principles to keep in touch with new areas of application. The Encyclopedia of Ecology & Environmental Management provides a complete one-volume guide to the core definitions and issues associated with pure and applied ecology.
