Aim of this book is to bring out a
general view on the function of ecosystems, modelling, sampling strategies,
invading species, the response of organisms to modifications, the carbon
dynamics, the mathematical models and theories that can be applied in diverse
This practical dictionary is for the
use of students, teachers, and investigators in ecology and related fields such
as range management, forestry, wildlife, conservation, agronomy, and limnology.
The aim of this dictionary is to fill the need for definitions of many new terms
that have come into usage during the past thirty years and also to include many
of the old terms that are used in current literature.
