Oxford Bibliographies in Ecology is an extensive, annotated bibliography of the most important concepts and ideas in the discipline. Ecology is a wide-ranging field that has its roots in the observations and writings of the early plant geographers, including of course Charles Darwin. As ecology has developed it has drawn from classical ‘hard sciences’ such as chemistry and physics, but has its own unique identity and today brings in modern aspects of many other disciplines including other areas of the life sciences, and geography, mathematics, computing and statistics. Ecology itself forms the underpinning of Environmental Science. And so, ecology has much to offer. For Oxford Bibliographies in Ecology, topics from all the relevant areas have been selected; these include articles on autoecology, population, community, and ecosystem ecology, the main biomes of the world, as well as articles related to the synthesis of ecology with other disciplines including human ecology, agroecology, and chemical ecology, for example.
