"Widespread adoption and practice of this style of quantitative thinking could improve the quality of ecological research, both basic and applied, and enhance the potential for successful interdisciplinary syntheses."
"Schneider's book is, to my knowledge, the first to target this whole topic in a single-author text, and he should be applauded for attempting such a difficult task."
--TREE, Paul Giller, Department of Zoology, University College, Cork, Ireland
"This is a very informative and useful book... Those who teach ecology should use this book as an excellant companion to more standard ecology textbooks."
--Dan L. Danielopol, in AUSTRALIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES INSTITUTE OF LIMNOLOGY
"The mathematics are kept simple and for those interested to go deeper into applications of the topics discussed, a series of exercises is offered after each chapter. This approach distinguishes the present book from most textbooks dealing only with descriptive recipes for field or experimental ecology, published during the last years. This is a very informative and useful book. I recommend to ecologists of all ages. Those who teach ecology should use this book as an excellent companion to more standard ecology textbooks. Finally, I congratulate not only the author but also Academic Press and its books acquisitor for the realisation of this project."
