About this product
- DescriptionWith the recently published Seventh Edition of <i>Ecology: The Ecomy of Nature</i>, the landmark text that helped define the introductory ecology course became the first textbook to fully embrace the challenges and opportunities of teaching ecology today. Now that acclaimed resource is available in a new version designed exclusively for Canadian instructors and students. <i>Ecology: The Ecomy of Nature, Seventh Canadian</i> Edition maintains Robert Ricklefs signature evolutionary perspective and the latest edition s dramatically updated pedagogy, and design, but this version focuses on a wide range of vivid examples from across Canada, as well as breakthrough research from Canadian scientists. It is an ideal way to communicate the fundamental ideas and high-impact relevance of the science of ecology in a Canadian classroom. <i>Ecology: The Ecomy of Nature, Canadian Edition</i> is accompanied by a dedicated package of Canada-specific student and instructor resources, including PowerPoint sets, optimized art, a test bank, online quizzes, and its own version of W.H. Freeman's acclaimed adaptive quizzing engine, LearningCurve.
