وصف كتب مصر
The updated fourth edition of the Dictionary of Ecology is the most
comprehensive and authoritative dictionary of ecology available. Written in a
clear, accessible style, it contains more than 6,000 entries on all aspects of
ecology and related environmental scientific disciplines such as biogeography,
genetics, soil science, geomorphology, atmospheric science, and oceanography.
The information covered in the dictionary is wide-ranging and includes plant
and animal physiology, animal behavior, pollution, conservation, habitat
management, population, evolution, environmental pollution, climatology and
meteorology. It also features many line drawings and useful appendices
including estimations of population parameters, the geologic time-scale, SI
units, and--new to this edition--a web-linked appendix of relevant
organizations including both governmental agencies and conservation societies.
Fully revised, updated, and expanded, with over 100 new entries, this fourth
edition also contains new web links for dozens of entries--which are accessed
and kept up to date via the Dictionary of Ecology companion website. The
dictionary will be invaluable to students and professionals interested in
ecology, biology, conservation, and the environmental sciences as well as
general readers with an interest in the natural world.
