Principles of ecology by Rory Putman( Book )

33 editions published between 1983 and 1988 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Ecology teachers ourselves we have become increasingly aware of the lack of a single comprehensive textbook of Ecvlogy which we can recommend unreservedly to our students. While general, review texts are readily available in other fields, recent publications in Ecology have tended for the most part to be small, specialised works on single aspects of the subject. Such general texts as are available are often rather too detailed and, in addition, tend to be somewhat biased towards one aspect of the discipline or another and are thus not truly balanced syntheses of current knowledge. Ecology is, in addition, a rapidly developing subject: new information is being gathered all the time on a variety of key questions; new approaches and techniques open up whole new areas of research and establish new principles. Already things have changed radically since the early '70s and we feel there is a need for an up to date student text that will include some of this newer material. We have tried, therefore, to create a text that will review all the major principles and tenets within the whole field of Ecology, presenting the generally accepted theories and fundamentals and reviewing carefully the evidence on which such principles have been founded. While recent developments in ecological thought are emphasised, we hope that these will not dominate the material to the extent where the older-established principles are ignored or overlooked

Video techniques in animal ecology and behaviour by Stephen D Wratten( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Spanish and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides expert evaluation of the use of video techniques in a wide range of behavioural and ecological research situations. Covering applied techniques both in the laboratory and the field, the latest results from leading expert researchers are given
Biological control : measures of success by Geoff Gurr( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As well as examining successful biological control programmes this book analyses why the majority of attempts fail. Off-target and other negative effects of biological control are also dealt with. Chapters contributed by leading international researchers and practitioners in all areas of biological control afford the book a breadth of coverage and depth of analysis not possible with a single author volume. Combined with the use of other experts to review chapters and editorial oversight to ensure thematic integrity of the volume, this book provides the most authoritative analysis of biological control published. Key aspects addressed include how success may be measured, how successful biological control has been to date and how may it be made more successful in the future. With extensive use of contemporary examples, photographs, figures and tables this book will be invaluable to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as being a `must' for all involved in making biological control successful
Ecosystem services in agricultural and urban landscapes by Stephen D Wratten( Book )

25 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couv. indique : "Ecosystem services are the resources and processes supplied by natural ecosystems which benefit humankind (for example, pollination of crops by insects, or water filtration by wetlands). They underpin life on earth, provide major inputs to many economic sectors and support our lifestyles. Agricultural and urban areas are by far the largest users of ecosystems and their services and (for the first time) Ecosystem Services in Agricultural and Urban Landscapes explores the role that ecosystem services play in these managed environments. Ecosystem Services in Agricultural and Urban Landscapes also explores methods of evaluating ecosystem services, and discusses how these services can be maintained and enhanced in our farmlands and cities. Ecosystem Services in Agricultural and Urban Landscapes will be useful to students and researchers from a variety of fields, including applied ecology, environmental economics, agriculture and forestry, and also to local and regional planners and policy makers."
Biodiversity and pests : key issues for sustainable management( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biodiversity offers great potential for managing insect pests. It provides resistance genes and anti-insect compounds; a huge range of predatory and parasitic natural enemies of pests; and community ecology-level effects operating at the local and landscape scales to check pest build-up.
