As with other books in the Biology of Habitats Series, the emphasis in this book will be on the organisms that dominate alpine environments although global change, management and conservation aspects (including restoration) will also be considered. The book is intended for students, naturalists and professionals and assumes no previous knowledge of mountain ecology.

Reviews
Review(s) from previous edition:
  • 'This is a masterful synthesis of information across many disciplines about the two polar regions giving, as intended, a readily accessible overview that deserves a long future role as the foundation to the teaching and understanding of polar biology.' - Trends in Ecology and Evolution
  • '...This up-to-date text provides an excellent introduction to polar ecology...The author has considerable experience in this field and both researchers and students of ecology and conservation will find the book of value.' - ASLIB Book Guide

Description
  • Successful first edition, thoroughly revised (60%) and updated
  • Incorporates comparison of Arctic and Antarctic systems, with a particular emphasis on the effects of climate change
  • Expanded coverage of marine ecosystems and the impact of humans
  • Concise and affordable overview providing complete coverage of the field, and based on a successful lecture course
New to this edition
  • Updated and revised throughout by a new team of authors
There is now an increased awareness of the importance of polar regions in the Earth system, as well as their vulnerability to anthropogenic derived change, including of course global climate change. This new edition offers a concise but comprehensive introduction to polar ecology and has been thoroughly revised and updated throughout, providing expanded coverage of marine ecosystems and the impact of humans. It incorporates a detailed comparison of the Arctic and Antarctic systems, with a particular emphasis on the effects of climate change, and describes marine, freshwater, glacial, and terrestrial habitats. This breadth of coverage is unique in the polar biology literature.

As with other titles in the Biology of Habitats Series, particular emphasis is placed on the organisms that dominate these extreme environments although pollution, conservation and experimental aspects are also considered. This accessible text is suitable for both senior undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in polar ecology, often as part of a wider marine biology degree programme. It will also be of value and use to the many professional ecologists and conservation biologists requiring a concise overview of the topic.

Readership: An accessible supplementary text suitable for both senior undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in polar ecology, often as part of a wider marine biology degree programme. It will also appeal to the many professional ecologists and conservation biologists requiring a concise overview of the topic. A secondary market will exist amongst physical geographers.
