Domain Specific Resources
Anything by Michael L. Morrison: his work is insightful from a landscape ecology / environmental GIS modelling perspective.
Concepts and Applications:
Wildlife-Habitat Relationships goes beyond introductory wildlife biology texts to provide wildlife professionals and students with an understanding of the importance of habitat relationships in studying and managing wildlife.
