This book demonstrates how phylogenetic information is transforming ecology by offering fresh ways to estimate the similarities and differences among. Biologists energetically debate terminology in ecology and evolution, but rarely discuss general strategies for resolving these debates.

We suggest focusing on metaphors, arguing that, rather than looking down on metaphors, biologists should embrace these terms as the powerful tools they are. Like any powerful tool, metaphors need to be used mindful of their Cited by: 4.

Ecology is the study of the interrelationships of living organisms with each other and with their environment. a) Habitat is the place where a particular organism lives.

Niche is the position or role of an organism within an ecosystem. b) Population refers to all the members of a particular species living together in a particular habitat. Two research centres, the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation and the Centre for Environment and Development, together with the Academy of Conservation Science and Sustainability Studies, provide the structure to conduct insightful research that fuels our thought leadership on policy issues and drives our capacity building activities.
