The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinction


This book deals with many of the studies Claudia talked about in class on Thursday. It may be a bit long to count as a light read, it’s about 600 pages, but the author makes it funny and portrays the information in the form of stories and personal accounts. For anyone who is going into ecology, or is already in ecology, this is kind of a must read. It is a wonderful way to be introduced to some major studies and the people who conducted them. I found it super fun to read and packed full of cool biology facts. The author's other books are also wonderful works of biology writing.
