Synopsis

Charles Krebs' best-selling majors-level text approaches ecology as a series of problems that are best understood by evaluating empirical evidence through data analysis and application of quantitative reasoning. No other text presents analytical, quantitative, and statistical ecological information in an equally accessible style for students. Reflecting the way ecologists actually practice, the new edition emphasises the role of experiments in testing ecological ideas and discusses many contemporary and controversial problems related to distribution and abundance.

Ecology: The Experimental Analysis of Distribution and Abundance, 6th Edition builds on a clear writing style, historical perspective, and emphasis on data analysis with an updated, reorganised discussion of key topics and two new chapters on climate change and animal behavior. Key concepts and key terms are now included at the beginning of each chapter to help students focus on what is most important within each chapter, mathematical analyses are broken down step by step in a new feature called “Working with the Data,” concepts are reinforced throughout the text with examples from the literature, and end-of-chapter questions and problems emphasise application.
