Slim, highly readable, and well-written. . . . [In The New Ecology] Schmitz has done a remarkable job weaving together threads drawn from classical ecology, economics, and environmental studies and science into a wide-ranging yet coherent whole that should serve as a blueprint for 21st century research and praxis in ecology.
—Aaron M. Ellison, Ecology
The New Ecology underlines the essential role that humans can play in shaping what the Earth will look like in the coming century. . . This book is an excellent introduction to the new ecology. It helps us understand that we humans—and all of nature—are intertwined and that we have to work with nature for a sustainable world. And it offers hope that change is possible.

Engaging, informative, easy to read, and filled with good examples that explained the interdependence between natural systems and human systems.
—Lisa Pike, NSTA Recommends
Featuring novel ideas communicated clearly, [The New Ecology] is likely to have broad appeal. . . . [N]on-ecologists will comprehend the book easily, and ecologists will be interested in the fresh concepts.
