This sixth edition continues the book's original objective of presenting a balanced introduction to ecology--plant and animal, theoretical and applied, psychological and behavioral, population and ecosystem. Revisions include a new chapter on global environmental change, human impacts on the global carbon cycle and possible implications for the global climate system; six new essays demonstrating the relevance of ecological concepts; new information on the evolutionary perspective on ecological systems; and a new organizational system for the entire book, moving from the local to the global view.
