The Ecology Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained [9780241350386]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Explore ecology in this accessible introduction to how the natural world works and how we have started to understand the environment, ecosystems, and climate change.

Using a bold, graphic-led approach, The Ecology Book explores and explains over 85 of the key ideas, movements, and acts that have defined ecology and ecological thought.

The book has a simple chronological structure, with early chapters ranging from the ideas of classical thinkers through to attempts by Enlightenment thinkers to systematically order the natural world.

Later chapters trace the evolution of modern thinking, from the ideas of Thomas Malthus, Henry Thoreau, and others, right the way through to the political and scientific developments of the modern era, including the birth of the environmental movement and the Paris Agreement.

The ideal introduction to one of the most important subjects of our time.

AUTHOR: Dr Tony Juniper is an independent environmentalist and writer. He is a fellow of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and the President of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts.
