Begon, Townsend, and Harper's Ecology has long been regarded as the definitive textbook on all aspects of ecology. This new edition provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject, from the first principles of ecology to the current state of the field, and aims to improve students' preparedness to address the environmental problems of the new millennium.
Thoroughly revised and updated, this fourth edition includes:
- three new chapters on applied ecology, reflecting a rigorous, scientific approach to the ecological problems now facing mankind
- discussion of over 800 new studies, updating the text throughout
- an updated, user-friendly design with margin notes and chapter summaries that serve as study aids
The resulting textbook is easy to use, lucid and up-to-date, and is the essential reference for all students whose degree program includes ecology and for practicing ecologists.
“Begon, Townsend and Harper has been the standard advancedtextbook in ecology for nearly 20 years. I greatly welcome thisfourth edition, which maintains the book’s position at theforefront of the discipline.”
Professor Sir John Lawton, Chairman, Royal Commission onEnvironmental Pollution, and formerly Chief Executive of the UKNatural Environment Research Council

“With remarkable clarity and insight, these gifted authorslay the evolutionary foundation of the discipline and then buildthe superstructure of Ecology, layer by layer. This is a completereworking of the earlier version, a lucid synthesis sprinkled withclear examples. My colleagues and I have used this text to teachecology for more than 20 years, and not surprisingly it has beenrecognized as the leading text in the field; this new versionguarantees it will remain in pole position for many years tocome.”
Peter Hudson, Pennsylvania State University

“Ecology: From Individual, to Ecosystems isunparalleled among ecology texts for its breadth of coverage ofcontemporary ecology and for its clear presentation of even themore complex topics. The coverage of population ecology is superb,and the presentation of all topics is enriched both by extremelyclear illustrations and a rich use of examples of humanrelationships with the environment. It should be read by allaspiring ecologists and the professors who teach them.”
