A Dictionary of Ecology, Evolution and Systematics Summary


A Dictionary of Ecology, Evolution and Systematics by R. J. Lincoln

The dynamic nature of science and scientific progress has required a completely revised, updated and expanded version of this hugely successful book, which remains the most wide-ranging and comprehensive dictionary for the study of natural history in its broadest sense. There are over 11,000 entries, providing a working dictionary for students, teachers, researchers and others having an interest within the broad arena of biodiversity studies. The coverage cuts across classical disciplines (botany, zoology, bacteriology, mineralogy, palaeontology, etc.), focusing particularly on concepts, strategies and methodologies. New information in the book reflects major scientific developments, hence special attention is given to terminology relating to molecular techniques and to terminology generated by recent initiatives in the study of biological diversity and global climate change.

A Dictionary of Ecology, Evolution and Systematics Reviews


"...this work would be useful in fields such as soil science, physical anthropology, biogeography, botany, and zoology. Fans of the first edition will love the second; those in need of a first-rate biology dictionary would do well to acquire this one." Choice
"...if you're looking for a readable reference, useful for academics and non-academics alike, covering not only subtleties of language but a wide range of information relevant to the practising ecologist--you've found it!" Canadian Society of Environmental Biologists
