"Ecological Genetics" addresses the fundamental problems of which of the many molecular markers should be used and how the resulting data should be analysed in clear, accessible language, suitable for upper-level undergraduates through to research-level professionals. This is a very accessible straightforward text to deal with this difficult topic - applying modern molecular techniques to ecological processes. It is written by active researchers and teachers within the field. There will be an accompanying web site managed by the authors, comprising of worked examples, test data sets and hyperlinks to relevant web pages. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

Long-term ecological data are critical for informing long-term trends in biodiversity and trends in environmental change. The Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) is a major initiative of the Australian Government and one of its key areas of investment is to provide funding for a network of longterm ecological research plots around Australia (LTERN). This book highlights some of the temporal changes in the environment and/or in biodiversity that have occurred in different ecosystems, ranging from tropical rainforests, wet eucalypt forests and alpine regions through to rangelands and deserts. Many important trends and changes are documented and they often provide new insights that were previously poorly understood or unknown. These data are precisely the kinds of data so desperately needed to better quantify the temporal trajectories in the environment and biodiversity in Australia. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
