"This is the most comprehensive and authoritative paperback dictionary of ecology available. Including wide-ranging coverage of the environmental sciences, and now thoroughly revised for this new edition, it will be invaluable to students, professionals, and anyone with an interest in the natural world and our environment." "Over 5,000 entries: Subjects include plant and animal physiology, animal behaviour, evolution, environmental pollution and conservation, climatology and meteorology, geomorphology, and oceanography. Fully updated to incorporate developments in this rapidly evolving field, particularly in the areas of molecular ecology, conservation, and the management of habitats. New entries include economic injury level, edge effect, extremophile, hot spot, intermediate disturbance hypothesis, satellite DNA, selfish herd, transfer-RNA, and xenology."--Jacket.
