Encyclopedia of Ecology by S. E. Jorgensen

Book Description

The groundbreaking Encyclopedia of Ecology provides an authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the complete field of ecology, from general to applied. It includes over 500 detailed entries, structured to provide the user with complete coverage of the core knowledge, accessed as intuitively as possible, and heavily cross-referenced. Written by an international team of leading experts, this revolutionary encyclopedia will serve as a one-stop-shop to concise, stand-alone articles to be used as a point of entry for undergraduate students, or as a tool for active researchers looking for the latest information in the field. Entries cover a range of topics, including: Behavioral Ecology Ecological Processes Ecological Modeling Ecological Engineering Ecological Indicators Ecological Informatics Ecosystems Ecotoxicology Evolutionary Ecology General Ecology Global Ecology Human Ecology System Ecology * The first reference work to cover all aspects of ecology, from basic to applied* Over 500 concise, stand-alone articles are written by prominent leaders in the field* Article text is supported by full-color photos, drawings, tables, and other visual material* Fully indexed and cross referenced with detailed references for further study* Writing level is suited to both the expert and non-expert* Available electronically on ScienceDirect shortly upon publication

Books By Author S. E. Jorgensen

Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling by S. E. Jorgensen Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling, Hardback (February 2011)

Presents an introduction to ecological modelling. This title explains the concepts and processes involved in ecological modelling, presents the developments in the field and provides readers with the tools to construct their own models.

Performance and Durability Assessment by S. E. Jorgensen Performance and Durability Assessment, Hardback (October 2004)

Solar devices lose their performance over time. The rate of degradation controls the service life of these devices. This book talks about the concepts used to assess durability and performance of two specific solar collector systems. It presents the methodology of service lifetime predictions and provides two real examples.

Towards a Thermodynamic Theory for Ecological Systems by S. E. Jorgensen Towards a Thermodynamic Theory for Ecological Systems, Hardback (July 2004)

Presents a consistent and complete ecosystem theory based on thermodynamic concepts. It exlains the recently developed ecosystem theory based on thermodynamics.

Lake and Reservoir Management by S. E. Jorgensen Lake and Reservoir Management, Hardback (July 2004)

Presents readers with an overview of lake management problems and the tools that can be applied to solve probelms. Lake management tools are presented in detail, including environmental technological methods, ecotechnological methods and the application of models to assess the best management strategy.

He teaches courses in ecosystem ecology, environmental biology, networks, and human ecology and sustainability. Dr. Fath has also taught short-courses on ecological modelling in Portugal, Croatia, and Denmark. Since 2002, he is a regular summer research scientist at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (Austria). Dr. Fath graduated in 1990 from Miami University (OH) with degrees in Physics and Aeronautics. He completed an M.S. degree in Environmental Science at Ohio State University (1993) and earned a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Georgia in 1998. He was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Georgia (1998-2000) and the U.S. EPA in Cincinnati (2000-2001). Dr. Fath researches system sustainability using ecological network analysis, integrated environmental assessment, and information theory. He has published research papers in Journal of Theoretical Biology, Ecological Modelling, Biosystems, Ecological Complexity, Environmental Modelling and Software, and Ecosystems. He has co-authored the book A New Ecology: Systems Perspective. Professional Service includes: Associate Editor for the journal Ecological Modelling (since 2005), Associate Editor-in-chief for the Encyclopedia of Ecology, President, North American Chapter of International Society for Ecological Modelling (since 2006), Editorial Board, The Scientific World Journal (2001-present), Editorial Board, International Journal of Ecodynamics (2004-present), Board of Directors, International Environmental Modelling and Software Society (2004-present), Baltimore County Commission on Environmental Quality (2005-present).
