“We have just received stock of this important ecology book. Retail Price is S$55.00 inclusive of GST.

The OUP page describes the Ecology of Tropical East Asia as (amongst other things):
the first book to describe the terrestrial ecology of the entire East Asian tropics and subtropics, from southern China to western Indonesia. It deals with plants, animals, and the ecosystems they inhabit, as well as the diverse threats to their survival and the options for conservation.
This book provides the background knowledge of the region’s ecology needed by both specialists and non-specialists to put their own work into a broader context.
