About the book:

This book contains the proceedings of the symposium organized to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the British Ecological Society, and its purpose is to try and assess the contribution which ecology has made to our understanding of the natural world during the 100 years or so of the discipline's formal existence. An unusual feature of the book, described in the first chapter is that the opinions of the whole membership of the society were sought through a postal questionnaire, the results of which are summarized, and to some extent related to the background of the member who replied. The major part of the book consists of 10 essays, each by eminent authorities, on the principles identified by the members, and to that extent can be regarded as a text dealing with 10 of the most important ideas in the subject. Indeed in some senses it can be regarded as a syllabus for those wishing to be acquainted with key ideas in ecology.
