Publisher's Summary

Explore ecology in this accessible introduction to how the natural world works and how we have started to understand the environment, ecosystems and climate change. 

Using a bold approach, The Ecology Book explores and explains over 85 of the key ideas, movements and acts that have defined ecology and ecological thought. The audiobook has a simple chronological structure, with early chapters ranging from the ideas of classical thinkers through to attempts by Enlightenment thinkers to systematically order the natural world. Later chapters trace the evolution of modern thinking, from the ideas of Thomas Malthus, Henry Thoreau and others right the way through to the political and scientific developments of the modern era, including the birth of the environmental movement and the Paris Agreement. 

The ideal introduction to one of the most important subjects of our time narrated by Dugland-Bruce Lockhart.

I want the actual book now!

Rammed full of information, history, quotes and knowledge. I really need the physical book to get the most of it though, I think. Diagrams and the like are surely present.
