Theoretical Ecology
Author: Kevin S. McCann
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Release Date: 2020-04-29
Pages: 320
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Theoretical Ecology: concepts and applications continues the authoritative and established sequence of theoretical ecology books initiated by Robert M. May which helped pave the way for ecology to become a more robust theoretical science, encouraging the modern biologist to better understand the mathematics behind their theories. This latest instalment builds on the legacy of its predecessors with a completely new set of contributions. Rather than placing emphasis on the historical ideas in theoretical ecology, the Editors have encouraged each contribution to: synthesize historical theoretical ideas within modern frameworks that have emerged in the last 10-20 years (e.g. bridging population interactions to whole food webs); describe novel theory that has emerged in the last 20 years from historical empirical areas (e.g. macro-ecology); and finally to cover the rapidly expanding area of theoretical ecological applications (e.g. disease theory and global change theory). The result is a forward-looking synthesis that will help guide the field through a further decade of discovery and development. It is written for upper level undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers seeking synthesis and the state of the art in growing areas of interest in theoretical ecology, genetics, evolutionary ecology, and mathematical biology.

Marine Ecology
Author: Martin R. Speight
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Release Date: 2013-04-30
Pages: 256
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book began life as a series of lectures given to second and third year undergraduates at Oxford University. These lectures were designed to give students insights as to how marine ecosystems functioned, how they were being affected by natural and human interventions, and how we might be able to conserve them and manage them sustainably for the good of people, both recreationally and economically. This book presents 10 chapters, beginning with principles of oceanography important to ecology, through discussions of the magnitude of marine biodiversity and the factors influencing it, the functioning of marine ecosystems at within trophic levels such as primary production, competition and dispersal, to different trophic level interactions such as herbivory, predation and parasitism. The final three chapters look at the more applied aspects of marine ecology, discussion fisheries, human impacts, and management and conservation. Other textbooks covering similar topics tend to treat the topics from the point of view of separate ecosystems, with chapters on reefs, rocks and deep sea. This book however is topic driven as described above, and each chapter makes full use of examples from all appropriate marine ecosystems. The book is illustrated throughout with many full colour diagrams and high quality photographs. The book is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students at colleges and universities, and it is hoped that the many examples from all over the world will provide global relevance and interest. Both authors have long experience of research and teaching in marine ecology. Martin Speight’s first degree was in marine zoology at UCNW Bangor, and he has taught marine ecology and conservation at Oxford for 25 years. His research students study tropical marine ecology from the Caribbean through East Africa to the Far East. Peter Henderson is a Senior Research Associate at the University of Oxford, and is Director of Pisces Conservation in the UK. He has worked on marine and freshwater fisheries, as well as ecological and economic impacts and exploitation of the sea in North and South America as well as Europe.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Ecology is a biological branch that is concerned with the study of the interactions between organisms and their environment. It primarily focuses on the biotic and abiotic components of the organisms' environment. Ecology studies the distribution, biodiversity, biomass and populations of organisms. It also focuses on the competition and cooperation among species. Concepts from this field are often applied in areas such as wetland management, conservation biology, city planning, community health, applied science, human social interaction, etc. It is also applied in natural resource management such as forestry, agroforestry and agriculture. Ecology works to explain the movement of energy and materials via living communities, life processes, adaptations and interactions, the successional development of ecosystems, and the distribution of organism's biodiversity in the environment. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts in the field of ecology. Such selected concepts that redefine this field have been presented herein. The textbook is appropriate for students seeking detailed information in this area as well as for experts.

Ecology has applications in diverse fields like forestry, conservation biology, community health, wetland management, human social interaction, etc. The understanding of the principles of ecology is fundamental to the development of behavioral ecology, social ecology, cognitive ecology, biogeography, molecular ecology and social ecology. From theories to research to practical applications, case studies related to all contemporary topics of relevance to this field have been included in this book. Some of the diverse topics covered herein address the varied branches that fall under this category. This book includes contributions of experts and scientists, which will provide innovative insights into the field of ecology.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The scientific study of marine-life populations, habitat and interactions among organisms and the surrounding environment is known as marine ecology. It includes the study of their abiotic as well as biotic factors. Marine ecosystems are characterized by a high salt content. Marine ecology is involved in the study of the influence of geology, meteorology, geography, chemistry, physics and pedology of marine ecosystems. Some of the different types of marine ecosystems which are studied within this field are salt marshes, lagoons, mangroves, coral reefs and intertidal zones. It also studies the impact of human activities such as agriculture, medical research, fisheries and forestry on these ecosystems. This book explores all the important aspects of marine ecology in the present day scenario. It is a complete source of knowledge on the present status of this important field. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make this book an invaluable source of knowledge.
