From the Publisher
Life on Earth can be viewed as a complex network of interactions between living organisms and their respective environments. By parsing the natural world into various ecosystems and biomes, the extent and significance of such interaction among species and between organisms and their natural habitats becomes abundantly clear. The study of ecology forms the heart of this engaging volume, which explores the formation of ecological communities and examines the biological diversity that forms the backbone of life on the planet.

Library Media Connection (May/June 2012)
This new series looks at aspects of ecology, including what is happening to the planet and what people can do to help combat environmental concerns. If one accepts the ecological viewpoint presented, the books are clear, concise, and colorful. Each book's "For More Information" page includes contact information for relevant organizations. The text is simple and straightforward and includes graphs and photographs to clarify subjects. These books would work well in an environmental science class. Glossary. Index. Laura Younkin, Library Media Specialist, Ballard High School, Louisville, Kentucky [Editor's Note: Available in e-book format.] RECOMMENDED.
