Название: Environmental Biology
Автор: Jones A.
The biosphere is the Earth's fundamental life support system and a working knowledge of living organisms and how they operate is essential for a clear understanding of our environment. Environmental Biology is an accessible introduction to the core elements of biology and the biosphere. Introducing the characteristics, organization, and distribution of living organisms, the book examines the components of the biosphere and basic ecological processes. With coverage of aquatic and terrestrial examples throughout, Jones presents a clear understanding of the fundamental processes of life before examining its more complex components — individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems. Environmental Biology offers an invaluable introduction to the living environment for all areas of study, from environmental history, agriculture and forestry to impact assessment, climate change and conservation.
