Review:

"Enjoyable and thought-provoking."--Cary Seidman"Science Teacher" (03/01/2009)

"Lively compact book. . . . A dynamic web of ideas that can be entered at any point or read straight through."--Claire Yezbak Fadden"Life After 50" (04/01/2009)

From the Author:

"Ecology for everybody!"
This is a compact, reader-friendly book that uses everyday nontechnical language to explain 60 basic ecological concepts that we need to understand environmental thinking--and the debates and struggles it's used in. It is aimed at ordinary citizens, business people, scientists in other fields, students, government officials--everybody concerned with a sustainable future for humanity and the other species with whom we are interdependent. It is noteworthy as the first popular book to include up-to-date findings about the microscopic beings that first made plant and animal life possible and now regulate global temperature, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, and other features of Earth. It is arranged in a user-friendly A to Z order, but can be read in any order, intermittently, backward, or as you please. It's full of examples, has a suite of 6 illustrations at the outset to set the global ecology scene, and carries a low, holiday-present price.
