Amazon.com: HASH(0xa0eb36e4) out of 5 stars 1 review
HASH(0xa1e990c0) out of 5 stars clear, easy intro..... Nov. 20 2001
By Craig Chalquist, PhD, author of TERRAPSYCHOLOGY and DEEP CALIFORNIA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
....to the principles of ecology. This book, if you can find it, is logically organized and very easy to understand. It moves gradually from the foundational dynamics (energy flows, eat-or-be-eaten) to entire ecosystems.
Some readers will be distracted by the dated references to outer space and the cute chapter headings--"Methods for Mission Impossible," etc. Most of the first chapter, Wonder and Anxiety, was a teaching device that seemed to me to take forever to get to the point; other readers less familiar with ecology might find it useful, however.
Bottom line: I'd buy another book from this author. It's always nice to find clear voices in the sciences.
