Traces the origin and development of the notion that living things interact with their environment, from vague European and American theories of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, through the coining of the term "ecosystem" in 1935 and its first application, to its domination of the science of ecology in the 1960s and the current state of the art. More history than science, requires no background knowledge. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
