  • Provides a complete overview of the different ecological processes acting in ecosystems, processes which are typically described in several different disciplines
  • describes ecological processes in a common framework of ecological thermodynamics, which can help the reader understand the ecology is now a mature and coherent scientific discipline
  • Presents quantification tools for the different ecological processes described, since quantification is key to making predictions and to manage environmental resources


Ecology is cross-disciplinary field involving many different aspects of science. Written with this in mind, this book introduces ecological processes, ranging from physical processes, to chemical processes and biological processes. It contains all the necessary information on an ecological process: a clear, detailed but not too lengthy definition, some practical examples, the main mathematical models which have been used to describe the process, the key interconnections with other ecological processes that must be known in order to apply what has been learned from the book.
