1 Reviewen
Cambridge Studies in Ecology presents balanced, comprehensive, up-to-date, and critical reviews of selected topics within ecology, both botanical and zoological. The Series is aimed at advanced final-year undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, and university teachers, as well as ecologists in industry and government research. It encompasses a wide range of approaches and spatial, temporal, and taxonomic scales in ecology, including quantitative, theoretical, population, community, ecosystem, historical, experimental, behavioural and evolutionary studies. The emphasis throughout is on ecology related to the real world of plants and animals in the field rather than on purely theoretical abstractions and mathematical models. Some books in the Series attempt to challenge existing ecological paradigms and present new concepts, empirical or theoretical models, and testable hypotheses. Others attempt to explore new approaches and presents syntheses on topics of considerable importance ecologically which cut across the conventional but artificial boundaries within the science of ecology.
