Introductory Ecology For The Arabian Gulf

المؤلف : D. Salim Al - Mohanna , D. Robin Meakins

 

The introductory ecology describes nature on our planet the Earth and its components, i.e. living and non-living elements, in a simple and approachable ways. It is written for university undergraduates majoring in a variety of discipline and others whom have general interests about nature and the environment. It is unique in so much as many of the examples used are from the Arabian region while using other areas for biomes not seen in Arabia. The authors feel that this approach will make the study of ecology in the region more relevant to and more exciting for the student.

The book consists of nine chapters. The first one defines the term of ecology as a science of studying the natural systems that exist on Earth including biotic and abiotic elements. This chapter also addresses different types of biomes and their distribution at various bio-geographical regions. The second chapter deals with populations that includes factors controlling populations growth, size limitation of populations, and competition.  The biogeochemical and hydrological cycles occurring on Earth and their effects on the biota addressed in chapter three. While chapter four deals with the energy flow through the trophic levels of life on Earth and their division into different forms through all levels of feeding from the producing primary producers to the top consumers, the predators. Chapter five describes all the main types of natural terrestrial ecosystem in relation to both abiotic and biotic factors that includes deserts, mountains, grasslands, forests and tundra. While in Chapter six the aquatic ecosystems are discussed showing the transition from rivers, to lakes, and to the main aquatic component the seas. Chapter seven takes up animal behaviour and reproduction strategies that are important in understanding ecological systems.  Environmental problems induced by human behaviour are discussed in chapter eight. Such problems facing the natural ecosystem have drastic effects on sustainability of biological as well as non-biological resources. The diversity of living organisms is described in chapter nine. This chapter also addresses the diversity of ecosystems on earth and highlights measures of conservation to prevent further deterioration occurring in the world at present. Glossary section is included at the end of the book explaining and defining various scientific words
