"A free-flowing essay on the theoretical foundations of ecology. This is a delightful little book... I recommend it highly as a true pleasure to read."--Physics Today
"Ginzburg and Colyvan suggest that some difficulties of environmental management stem from the fact that our current tools ignore the inertial aspects of population dynamics. If they are correct, Ecological Orbits
ought to become an instant classic, one to be read by every professional and aspiring ecologist and environmental biologist." --Science
