  • Dung Beetle Ecologyby Ilkka Hanski; Yves Cambefort

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 83.00

    In many ecosystems dung beetles play a crucial role--both ecologically and economically--in the decomposition of large herbivore dung. Their activities provide scientists with an excellent opportunity to explore biological community dynamics. This collection of essays offers a concise account of the population and community ecology of dung beetles... more...

  • Biology and the Mechanics of the Wave-Swept Environmentby Mark Denny

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 55.00

    This text introduces and draws together pertinent aspects of fluid dynamics, physical oceanography, solid mechanics, and organismal biology to provide a much-needed set of tools for quantitatively examining the biological effects of ocean waves. "Nowhere on earth does water move as violently as on wave-swept coasts," writes the author, "and every... more...

  • Lizard Ecologyby Laurie J. Vitt; Eric R. Pianka

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 66.50

    In a collection rich in implications for all fields of ecology, leading lizard ecologists demonstrate the utility of the phylogenetic approach in understanding the evolution of morphology, physiology, behavior, and life histories. Lizards, which are valued for their amenability to field experiments, have been the subject of reciprocal transplant experiments... more...

  • Ulysses' Sailby Mary W. Helms

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 40.50

    What do long-distance travelers gain from their voyages, especially when faraway lands are regarded as the source of esoteric knowledge? Mary Helms explains how various cultures interpret space and distance in cosmological terms, and why they associate political power with information about strange places, peoples, and things. She assesses the diverse... more...

  • Ecological Communitiesby Jr. Donald R. Strong; Daniel Simberloff

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 100.50

    This work is the first to focus systematically on a much-debated topic: the conceptual issues of community ecology, including the nature of evidence in ecology, the role of experiments, attempts to disprove hypotheses, and the value of negative evidence in the discipline. Originally published in 1984. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest... more...
