    Book Summary

    How much do we know about the living world and our impact upon it? Enough to make effective predictions about its future? This volume explores key scientific concepts underlying ecology and presents the story of environmental change from a human perspective, dealing with sustainability, biodiversity, extinction rates and global warming. In a form which is accessible to both the scientific and non-scientific reader, the text shows how ecological principles are crucial to the understanding of the world and have shaped our own evolution.
