The updated fourth edition of the Dictionary of Ecology is the most comprehensive and authoritative dictionary of ecology available.

The information covered in the dictionary is wide-ranging and includes plant and animal physiology, animal behavior, pollution, conservation, habitat management, population, evolution, environmental pollution, climatology and meteorology. It also features many line drawings and useful appendices including estimations of population parameters, the geologic time-scale, SI units, and--new to this edition--a web-linked appendix of relevant organizations including both governmental agencies and conservation societies. Fully revised, updated, and expanded, with over 100 new entries, this fourth edition also contains new web links for dozens of entries--which are accessed and kept up to date via the Dictionary of Ecology companion website. The dictionary will be invaluable to students and professionals interested in ecology, biology, conservation, and the environmental sciences as well as general readers with an interest in the natural world.
Reviews: 3
I am reviewing the 2010 edition. I found it to be lacking in specific terms that I was concerned with; for example, "regime," as it applies to vegetative landscapes, which is the definition I was looking for when I decided to buy the dictionary. I work with environmental documents on a routine basis, and I am finding that glossaries specific to the documents (if they have one) are often better at defining concepts than a dictionary such as this. The dictionary might be great for a university student. And perhaps the later version is more comprehensive.
Use this book almost daily during the school year.

Keep in mind it is an OXFORD book so the definitions and language are in the BRITISH-ENGLISH form, not AMERICAN-ENGLISH (when it comes to ecology/biology/the sciences, the differences can be significant)
If there are some terms you can't quite recall, or a term you want to know and you are constantly exposed to several aspects of the field, it's a helpful companion book.
