9780120884599: Ecological Paradigms Lost: Routes of Theory Change (Theoretical Ecology)

This edited volume in the Theoretical Ecology series addresses the historical development and evolution of theoretical ideas in the field of ecology. Not only does Ecological Paradigms Lost recount the history of the discipline by practitioners of the science of ecology, it includes commentary on these historical reflections by philosophers of science. Even though the theories discussed are, in many cases, are at the forefront of research, the language and approach make this material accessible to non-theoreticians. The book is structured in 5 major sections including population ecology, epidemiology, community ecology, evolutionary biology and ecosystem ecology. In each section a chapter by an eminent, experienced ecologist is complemented by analysis from a newer, cutting-edge researcher.

  • Reflection on the past and future of ecology
  • A historical overview of major ideas in the field of ecology
  • Pairing of historical views by ecologists along with a philosophical commentary directed at the practicing scientists' views by a philosopher of science
  • Historical analysis by practicing ecologists including anectodal experiences that are rarely recorded
  • Based on a very popular symposium at the 2002 Ecological Society of America annual meeting in Tucson, AZ

Book Description:

A new perspective on some of the major theoretical threads in ecology

Review:

"Finally, here is a book taking ecology seriously enough also to investigate it from a philosophy of science point of view, and in particular taking a Kuhnian entrance point as also indicated by the title...an exciting book and an interesting idea to view our science as Kuhn would have done...highly recommended." --Soren Nors Nielsen, Danmarks Farmaceutiske Universitet "Each section of Ecological Paradigms Lost certainly has something to offer the specialist." --Joseph Craine, Unviersity of Minnesota, Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior, in BIOSCIENCE

The editors of this volume commissioned papers by eminent ecologists, young and old, on theory development and cahnge in five subfields- population, epidemiological, community, evolutionary, and ecosystem ecology- and papers from philosophers of science commenting on the scientists' conclusions...a better perspective on ecology's past and, possibly, its future." --Thomas R. Dunlap, Texas A&M University, Department of History, in ECOLOGY
