About this product
- DescriptionEcology is a difficult field - this book presents a coherent philosophy for the struggle to understand, practise and teach it.
- Author BiographyBill Reiners has practised ecology for 45 years. His practice has primarily been focused at the ecosystem level, more specifically with biogeochemical phenomena, but he has also been interested in vegetation patterns across landscapes and the nature of disturbance and recovery in vegetation and ecosystems. His teaching and research have taken him to many terrestrial habitats ranging from tropical and temperate rain forests, temperate deciduous and coniferous forests and sagebrush steppe. He has been recognized as an ISI Highly Cited researcher, been recognized with a number of campus-wide awards at the University of Wyoming, and as a distinguished alumnus of Rutgers University. Jeff Lockwood has practised ecology for 25 years. After studying behavioural ecology (semiochemical communication), he became internationally recognized for his work in grasshopper management, pioneering a method that reduced insecticide use by >50% in the western US. He was among the first to apply complexity science to model the population dynamics of insects. Fascinated by the interface between the natural sciences and humanities, he now enjoys a joint appointment at the University of Wyoming between the department of philosophy and the MFA program in creative writing. His writing has been recognized with a Pushcart Prize and a John Burroughs Award.
