Jumuro This was my course book in first semester and it definitely changed the way I look at ecology I found it pretty boring before. The portions on human ecology make this book a very oddum piece of writing indeed, as it draws many analogies in nature with human societies that are far ahead of its time, and are more relevant today than ever. Designed to educate a wide audience about ecological science, this biology text shows you the application of ecological principles in the real world and how to use what you learn to solve problems in fields such as resource management, conservation biology, ecological toxicology, ecosystem health, landscape ecology, and restoration ecology.

Fundamentals of Ecology

Biography[ edit ] Son of the sociologist Howard W. Odum , and older brother of the ecologist Howard T. Odum , E. Odum credited his father for imparting a holistic approach to exploring subjects.


Eugene Odum

Eugene Odum: The father of modern ecology January 9, by James Hataway Eugene Odum is lionized throughout science as the father of modern ecology and recognized by the University of Georgia as the founder of what became the Eugene P. Eugene Odum was not given to fits of anger, but this time he was furious. It was the fall of In a meeting with his colleagues, Odum suggested that his ecology class be required of all new biology majors. His fellow scientists looked at him and laughed.
