Overview


Originally published in 1979, Serengeti: Dynamics of an Ecosystem was immediately recognized as the first synthesis of the patterns and processes of a major ecosystem. A prototype for initial studies, Serengeti contains baseline data for further and comparative studies of ecosystems. The new Serengeti II builds on the information presented originally in Serengeti; both books together offer essential information and insights for ecology and conservation biology.

Editorial Reviews

Science

“The editors of this volume have drawn together a number of experienced ecologists who have attempted to view their research within the broad framework of the Serengeti ecosystem. The book represents one of the most complete and thought-provoking attempts to analyze an African grassland ecosystem to date and will be a valuable source for all students and researchers engaged in the study of ecology in the tropics. Above all, perhaps, we may hope that as a result of the appearance of this valuable volume the work of the Serengeti Research Institute will not die.”
Animal Behaviour

“Exceptional research coverage of this ecosystem.”
