Applied Ecology and Natural Resource Managementby Guy R. McPherson, Stephen DeStefano
Pub. Date: 12/12/2002
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This volume bridges the gap between ecology and natural resource management and, in particular, focuses on plant ecology as a foundation for vegetation and wildlife management. It describes how concepts and approaches used by ecologists to study communities and ecosystems can be applied to their management. Guy R. McPherson and Stephen DeStefano emphasize the importance of thoughtfully designed and conducted scientific studies to both the advancement of ecological knowledge and the application of techniques for the management of plant and animal populations.
