Identifying and characterizing case studies of the successful use of basic ecological concepts to solve applied problems

Principal Investigators:

Andrew Sih

This proposal requests funds to support the writing and editing of a book during a sabbatical year in-residence at NCEAS. The book will present and discuss a collection of case studies that showcase the use of basic ecological concepts to generate solutions to complex applied problems.

Modern ecology as a basic science uses a blend of field surveys, field and laboratory experiments, and mathematical theory to generate general concepts on mechanisms and factors that govern the distribution and abundance of organisms. Part of the promise... more
