Originally published in 1979, "Serengeti: Dynamics of an Ecosystem" was immediately recognized as the first synthesis of the patterns and processes of a major ecosystem. A prototype for initial studies, "Serengeti" contains baseline data for further and comparative studies of ecosystems. The new "Serengeti II" builds on the information presented originally in "Serengeti;" both books together offer essential information and insights for ecology and conservation biology.
