One of the great classics of the ecological literature. It has served as an inspiration and challenge to three academic generations of biologists, a catalyst for controversy that still enlivens the field, and a record of the genius of the author.

Wilson
This book is of enduring value as the culminating work of one of the most important ecologists of all time.
Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University
