Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment

By Paul R. Ehrlich; Anne H. Ehrlich et al. | Go to book overview

Watt, K. E. F. 1968. Ecology and resource management. McGraw-Hill, New York. This is a good source for basic material on the analysis of exploited populations and the systems approach to theory.

Whittaker, R. H. 1975. Communities and ecosystems. 2d ed. Macmillan, New York. An excellent brief text with well-balanced, good coverage of ecological problems.
