The Serengeti Rules

Print
Written by Sean B. Carroll

  Working living systems follow certain fundamental rules, from the wildlife of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique to fish populations in Lake Mendoza in Wisconsin to viral and bacterial diseases in humans.  Trophic cascades and critical set points determine whether an ecosystem is balanced or out of control.  Understanding how these processes work from the scale of the elephant to that of a virus provides techniques to promote recovery of damaged ecological systems and control or eradicate diseases in humans.  The Serengeti Rules by Professor Sean Carroll is not only a easy and fascinating read; a good story in itself, but provides guidelines that offer great hope for Ecosystem Earth.
