Monitoring Ecological Change

Monitoring Ecological Change

Ian Spellerberg presents a practical introduction to how changes in living communities are measured and monitored. After describing the relevance and growth of ecological monitoring and the programs and organizations involved, this book presents the science of ecological monitoring in respect to spatial scales, temporal scales, indicators and indices. The later part of the book provides an assessment of methods and monitoring in practice, including many international case-study examples. First Edition Hb (1991): 0-521-36662-3 First Edition Pb (1991): 0-521-42407-0


"...should be present in any ecological library, as it will present the researcher with a way in to a wide, diverse and expanding subject."
Times Higher Education Supplement

"Accessible to non-specialists, this book is a good introductory teaching tool that will leave the student with a thorough grounding in the science of ecological monitoring."
