"In Reconstructing Biology, noted biologist and educator John Vandermeer explores the ways in which the science of biology has been and continues to be misinterpreted and misappropriated on behalf of some of the most pernicious doctrines and policies of the past 200 years." "From the politics of genetics to the biology of IQ, Reconstructing Biology is must reading for anyone concerned about the role of science in the most important social and political issues of our time."--Jacket

Nature's matrix : linking agriculture, conservation and food sovereignty by Ivette Perfecto( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Swedish and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Landscapes are frequently seen as fragments of natural habitat surrounded by a 'sea' of agriculture. But recent ecological theory shows that the nature of these fragments is not nearly as important for conservation as is the nature of the matrix of agriculture that surrounds them. Local extinctions from conservation fragments are inevitable and must be balanced by migrations if massive extinction is to be avoided. High migration rates only occur in what the authors refer to as 'high quality' matrices, which are created by alternative agroecological techniques, as opposed to the industrial monocultural model of agriculture. The authors argue that the only way to promote such high quality matrices is to work with rural social movements. Their ideas are at odds with the major trends of some of the large conservation organizations that emphasize targeted land purchases of protected areas. They argue that recent advances in ecological research make such a general approach anachronistic and call, rather, for solidarity with the small farmers around the world who are currently struggling to attain food sovereignty. Nature's Matrix proposes a radically new approach to the conservation of biodiversity based on recent advances in the science of ecology plus political realities, particularly in the world's tropical regions
Ecological complexity and agroecology by John H Vandermeer( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text reflects the immense current growth in interest in agroecology and changing approaches to it. While it is acknowledged that the science of ecology should be the basis of agroecological planning, many analysts have out-of-date ideas about contemporary ecology. Ecology has come a long way since the old days of "the balance of nature" and other romantic notions of how ecological systems function. In this context, the new science of complexity has become extremely important in the modern science of ecology. The problem is that it tends to be too mathematical and technical and thus off-putting for the average student of agroecology, especially those new to the subject. Therefore, this book seeks to present ideas about ecological complexity with a minimum of formal mathematics. The book's organization consists of an introductory chapter, and a second chapter providing some of the background to basic ecological topics, as they are relevant to agroecosystrems (e.g., soil biology and pest control). The core of the book consists of seven chapters on key intersecting themes of ecological complexity, including issues such as spatial patterns, network theory and tipping points, illustrated by examples from agroecology and agricultural systems from around the world."--Publisher's description
Ecological resources in New York State's colleges and universities by John H Vandermeer( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication contains an annotated directory of ecological personnel, primarily those associated with biology departments, an annotated catalog of ecology and related courses for each college and university, and a description of the various formal field stations currently used in ecological teaching or research. For each name entered in the personnel directory the following information is provided: current college department, name of college, city, and zip code; telephone number; highest degree earned, year received, and institution granting degree; area(s) of specialization; and a list of the ecological and related organizations of which the individual is a member. The list of college personnel is supplemented by an additional list of names drawn from the 1970 Directory of Members of the Ecological Society of America, including only those with New York addresses and excluding those in the preceding list. Each course description includes the name of the instructor, a review of the subject content, the number of undergraduates and the number of graduates in the course, and the text(s) used for the course. The university or college field sites described in this report include only those field stations with fairly extensive facilities for teaching and research. (Pr)
