The Ecology of Place: Contributions of Place-Based Research to Ecological Understanding
paper, 464 pp., $45.00
This text, composed of essays from contributing experts in the field of ecology and evolutionary biology, proposes that practical information gained from research of individual sites can be used as a framework to gain an understanding of other environments. The editors suggest that since ecology and evolutionary biology share some of the same elements as the social sciences, a research approach they call “ecology of place” be used in environmental studies.
