Название: Fundamentals of Biogeography
Автор: Huggett R.
Fundamentals of Biogeography offers a fresh, uptodate, introduction to biogeography, explaining the ecology, geography and history of animals and plants. The book defines and examines populations, communities and ecosystems - examining where different animals and plants live and how they came to be living there, investigating how populations grow, interact and survive. Stressing the role of ecological, geographical, historical and human factors in fashioning animal and plant distributions, Huggett reveals how life has and is adapting to its biological and physical surroundings. The book includes several sections on human attitudes to Nature differ, and how biogeography can affect conservation practice. As well as explaining key concepts and interactions, Huggett tackles many topical and controversial environmental and ethical concerns including: animal rights, species exploitation, habitat fragmentation, biodiversity, metapopulations, patchy landscapes and chaos. Illustrated throughout with informative diagrams and photos, and including chapter summaries, guides to further reading and an extensive glossary of key terms, Fundamentals of Biogeography presents an engaging introduction for students.
