He obtained the initial grant from the Atomic Energy Commission that established the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory. In 1970, the year he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences, Odum gained statewide fame for demonstrating the economic value of Georgia¿s undeveloped wetlands and thereby helping amass political support for the Coastal Marshlands Protection Act. Gene Odum is the recipient of the highest honors given in ecology ¿ the Prix de l¿Institut de la Vie and the Crafoord Prize.

He served as Director of the Institute of Ecology from 1994 through 1996. He was founder of the Institute of Environmental Sciences and the Ecology Research Center at Miami University. He is the author of five books and over 150 publications in major scientific journals and has received 42 grants totaling more than 2 million dollars. He was Ecology Program Director with the National Science Foundation from 1981-1983 and has served on or chaired numerous committees within the American Institute of Biological Sciences, the Ecological Society of America, the American Society of Mammalogists, the United States International Association for Landscape Ecology, the International Association for Ecology, and the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences.

Format: Paperback
The history of ecology cannot be learnt without reference to the work of Odum, neither the important shifting that will be necessary to build sustainable societies.
Is this book the reader will find the fundamentals of ecological processes and why they are so important to maintain stability and diversity, including too the basic concepts of energy and material flows being studied in sustainable development issues.
It's a classic and fundamental book for students all over the world.

This book is a fundamental text for anyone interested in ecology, environmental science, and systems thinking. I highly recommend it for it's easy reading, depth of coverage, and because Dr. Odum was a groundbreaking ecologist.
