Applied Ecology and Environmental Management


About the Series

The ecology is closely tied to environmental science and management. As a result, ecology has developed from a more descriptive to a more quantitative science, to be applicable as support for environmental management decisions. Several ecological sub-disciplines with emphasis on the application aspects have emerged as a result of this development:

  

  • Ecological Modeling
  • Ecological Indicators
  • Ecotechnology
  • Ecological Engineering
  • Ecohydrology
  • Ecological Economics
  • Ecological Informatics

This book series presents the state-of-the-art and an overview of these ecological sub disciplines with emphasis on the application in environmental management. It summarizes all relevant and basic knowledge needed to understand and utilize in environmental science, environmental management, applied ecology and pollution abatement.
