Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A reissue of Roughgarden's (biology, Stanford U.) text written when ecology and evolutionary biology were just coalescing into the subject of evolutionary ecology, and published by Macmillan in 1979. Though additional sources would be needed to describe recent developments, it remains a solid introduction for graduate and advanced undergraduates to the basic theory and methods. Annotation c.
