Includes bibliographical references and index.

"As a fundamental and applied discipline, the study of ecology has continued to grow since the first edition of Ecology: From Individuals to Ecosystems was published in 1986. The fifth edition of this definitive textbook provides depth and breadth across the ecological sciences, detailing the levels of ecological organization and management in individuals, population, whole communities and ecosystems. Significant updates have been made throughout to include biogeochemical, molecular and evolutionary ecology topics including, neutral theory, food webs, metabolic theory, metacommunities, biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, extinction crises, carbon storage and energy flux through ecosystems. Now in full colour, this edition includes: * Explicit linking of population and community ecology through community modules/multi-trophic interactions * Thought bubbles, allowing students to easily assimilate the information contained within each figure * Examples and applications of the current state of the field * Coverage of global changes, including climate change, addressing the key environmental concerns for the coming decades This up-to-date textbook will provide students and ecologists with an essential reference on all aspects of ecology, preparing them to address environmental problems of the future"--
