The Ecology, Biodiversity, and Conservation series presents balanced, comprehensive, up-to-date, and critical reviews of selected topics within the sciences of ecology and conservation biology, both botanical and zoological, and both ‘pure’ and ‘applied’. It is aimed at advanced final-year undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, and university teachers, as well as ecologists and conservationists in industry, government and the voluntary sectors. The series encompasses a wide range of approaches and scales (spatial, temporal, and taxonomic), including quantitative, theoretical, population, community, ecosystem, landscape, historical, experimental, behavioural and evolutionary studies. The emphasis is on science related to the real world of plants and animals rather than on purely theoretical abstractions and mathematical models.

Systematic Conservation Planning

The idea that nature is in balance and is only occasionally disrupted by external influences is a central concept in biology. However, much evidence contradicts this assumption. Using evidence from fossil history, studies of plant and animal populations and communities, this book shows that nonequilibrium is more widespread than equilibrium.

Insect Species Conservation Tim New La Trobe University, Victoria

Insects are the most diverse and abundant animals that share our world but the need for insect conservation can appear puzzling. This book provides sufficient background information, illustrated by examples of insect species needs and conservation programmes from many parts of the world, to enable more confident and efficient progress for conservation of these ecologically indispensable animals. Tim New demonstrates and clarifies what the major ingredients of insect species management for conservation are, and how those needs and ingredients may be integrated into effective and practical management or recovery plans.

Dr Marie-Jose Fortin University of Toronto

Dr Richard Hobbs Murdoch University, Western Australia

Dr Bruce Milne University of New Mexico

Cambridge Studies in Landscape Ecology presents synthetic and comprehensive examinations of topics that reflect the breadth of the discipline of landscape ecology. The focus is on spatial relationships at a variety of scales, in both natural and highly modified landscapes, on the factors that create landscape patterns; and on the influences of landscape structure on the functioning of ecological systems and their management. Some books in the series develop theoretical or methodological approaches to studying landscapes, while others deal more directly with the effects of landscape spatial patterns on population dynamics, community structure, or ecosystem processes. Still others examine the interplay between landscapes and human societies and cultures. The series is published in collaboration with the International Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE), which has Chapters in over 50 countries. IALE aims to develop landscape ecology as the scientific basis for the analysis, planning, and management of landscapes throughout the world. The organization advances international cooperation and interdisciplinary synthesis through scientific, scholarly, educational, and communication activities. Information on IALE is available at http://www.crle. uoguelph.ca/iale/

Science and Conservation in African Forests The Benefits of Longterm Research Edited by Richard Wrangham Harvard University, Massachusetts

and Elizabeth Ross Kasiisi School Project, Uganda

Forests need apes as much as the apes need the forests. They are the gardeners of the forest – keystone species in the ecology of African and Southeast Asian forests, dispersing seeds, creating light gaps and pruning branch-tips whilst feeding. Their habitat comprises two of the planet’s three major tropical forest blocks that are essential for global climate regulation. But the economic pressures that are destroying ape habitats are much greater than current available conservation finance. This unique case study from the Kibale national park illustrates how biological research has had diverse consequences for conservation. It examines effects on habitat management, community relations, ecotourism and training. Lessons learned from this project over the last 20 years will inspire researchers and conservationists to work together to promote biodiversity through field projects. 2008 228 x 152 mm 280pp 34 halftones 8 tables 978-0-521-89601-6 Hardback £65.00 978-0-521-72058-8 Paperback £27.99

Illustrated Moss Flora of Antarctica Ryszard Ochyra Polish Academy of Sciences

Halina Bednarek-Ochyra Polish Academy of Sciences

and Ronald Lewis Smith Centre for Antarctic Plant Ecology and Diversity

Mosses are a major component of the vegetation in ice-free coastal regions of Antarctica. They play an important role in the colonisation of ice-free terrain, accumulation of organic matter, release of organic exudates, and also provide a food and habitat resource for invertebrates. They serve as model organisms for physiological experiments designed to elucidate problems of plant cold tolerance and survival mechanisms and for monitoring biological responses to climate change. This Flora provides the first comprehensive description, with keys, of all known species and varieties of moss in the Antarctic biome. It has involved microscopic examination of around 10,000 specimens from Antarctica and, for


Plant Science and Mycology comparison, from other continents. All species are illustrated by detailed line drawings, alongside information about their reproductive status, ecology, and distribution. This is an invaluable resource for bryologists worldwide, as well as to Antarctic botanists and other terrestrial biologists. Studies in Polar Research

Entomology Evolution of the Insects David Grimaldi American Museum of Natural History, New York

and Michael S. Engel University of Kansas Natural History Museum

This book chronicles for the first time the complete evolutionary history of insects: their living diversity, relationships and 400 million years of fossils. Lavishly illustrated with original photo- and electronmicrographs, drawings, diagrams, and field photos, many in full colour. Essential reading for anyone interested in insect diversity. ‘There are a number of good entomology books on the market. Few, however, have integrated the living and fossil record as seamlessly as David Grimaldi and Michael Engel’s Evolution of the Insects. None, moreover, has combined this integration with so much studentfriendly text and such a wealth of illustrations (more than 900). The book shows that lavish photography and lucidity need not be the prerogative of popular entomology … Whatever is in store, Evolution of the Insects superbly documents the rich and colorful history of hexapods.‘ Science ‘… a ‘must have‘ for anyone interested in this extraordinary group of organisms … the stress on the importance of insects in the daily life of the planet is one of the book’s many strengths … a joy simply to browse, not only because of the high

standard of the images … but also because of the discoveries to be made on every page …‘ BBC Wildlife 2005 279 x 215 mm 772pp 100 line figures 165 halftones 400 plates 978-0-521-82149-0 Hardback £53.00

The Correspondence of Charles Darwin For the first time full authoritative texts of Darwin’s are made available, edited according to modern textual editorial principles and practice. Letterwriting was of crucial importance to Darwin’s work, not only because his poor health isolated him from direct personal communication with his scientific colleagues but also because the nature of his investigations required communication with naturalists in many fields and in all quarters of the globe. Thus the letters are a mine of information about the work in progress of a creative genius who produced an intellectual revolution.


Evolution The Correspondence of Charles Darwin Volume 16: 1868: Parts 1 and 2 Edited by Frederick Burkhardt American Council of Learned Societies

Charles Darwin depended on correspondence to collect data from all over the world, and to discuss his emerging ideas with scientific colleagues, many of whom he never met in person. In January of 1868, Darwin’s Variation Under Domestication was published. The first printing of 1500 copies rapidly sold out and the publisher, John Murray, ordered a second printing. Responses to this new book, added to Darwin’s continuing research into sexual selection and the expression of the emotions, increased the quantity of Darwin’s correspondence to such an extent that the letters from 1868 fill two volumes. The letters he wrote and received during this year are presented here in chronological order across two volumes, with notes and appendices to put them into context, explain references, and provide information on related works. For information on the Charles Darwin Correspondence Project, see http://www.darwinproject.ac.uk. From previous volumes: ‘The most recent volumes of Darwin’s correspondence shed new light on the complex question of the origin’s reception and Darwin’s responses to his critics … they allow us to see Darwin in his proper historical context … The story … is a more subtle complex and ultimately much more interesting one than those invented by the myth-makers … The letters also tell us so much about Victorian attitudes and society, and serve as a useful reminder that neither Darwin’s story nor that of the Origin finishes in 1859, demonstrating why the eventual publication of all Darwin’s correspondence is going to be so useful.’ Times Literary Supplement The Correspondence of Charles Darwin

Evidence and Evolution

Debating Design

The Logic Behind the Science Elliott Sober University of Wisconsin, Madison

‘I recommend this fascinating and well-written book, which will be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in the natural world.’ IBIS

Alternative Reproductive Tactics

How should the concept of evidence be understood? And how does it apply to the controversy surrounding creationism, natural selection and common ancestry? Elliott Sober investigates general questions about probability and evidence and shows how the answers he develops to those questions apply to the specifics of evolutionary biology. ‘Elliott Sober, a philosopher of science at the University of WisconsinMadison, has long been a leader in this school [epistemology and ethics], and his latest work, Evidence and Evolution: The Logic Behind the Science, shows why he commands our attention. He is interested in the question of evidence for theories, and he shows through a careful analysis of statistical thinking (particularly Bayesian thinking) how one can make informed decisions about claims made in biology.’ Michael Ruse, American Scientist

Statistics Explained, An Introductory Guide for Life Scientists Steve McKillup Central Queensland University

Student-friendly introduction to statistics, essential for bioscience undergraduates, particularly those without a strong mathematical background. ‘McKillup deserves to be congratulated on having produced a clear and accessible statistics book pitched at the uninitiated or the unsure.
