Ecology  (ISBN-10: 1615358366 | ISBN-13: 9781615358366)

Updated for 2013, Ecology is one title in the Britannica Illustrated Science Library Series. Long ago when people still lived in caves—perhaps at the same time when they developed habits that were different from those of other animals— humans began to practice ecology. They became keen observers of nature through such basic and instinctive actions as tracking both large wild animals and small prey, discerning edible plants from poisonous ones, and noting the time of year when different plants could be gathered. From necessity and inherent curiosity, humans began to learn about the relationships between living things and the environment. As the field of ecology grew, its focus went beyond the simple cataloging of living things in the world. Ecologists also became interested in understanding how living things function and how they interrelate with one another and with the environment—to explain that peculiar element that makes the Earth unique: life. We will begin by learning what ecology is and what it is not. (At times the word has been used incorrectly as a synonym for environmental protection.) Later, we will look at how living things are classified, before moving into the study of the environments in which they live: the land, water, and air.

Environment  (ISBN-10: 1615358374 | ISBN-13: 9781615358373)

Updated for 2013, the Environment is one title in the Britannica Illustrated Science Library Series. It does not take an expert in environmental science to realize that the world is changing. Is it getting warmer? It depends on where you live. Global warming does not necessarily mean that where you live it will be warmer. For most of the people on the planet, the changes to the climate are virtually imperceptible. That is not the case for many plants and animals, however. These are some of the topics covered by this book. The purpose of this book is to make you aware of various environmental challenges and their possible solutions. Once we begin to understand a given environmental issue, each one of us can begin to evaluate our own actions and change them if necessary to protect life on this planet.
