Description
Odum has been called the father of modern ecology; he brought the word "ecosystem" into common usage by making it the organizing concept of his classic textbook Fundamentals of ecology, first published in 1953. In the 1970s, Odum had a profound influence on the environmental movement that blossomed on college campuses and in the mainstream. Craige (comparative literature, U. of Georgia) analyzes Odum's writings and also relies on interviews with his friends and colleagues as well as conversations with Odum to place his achievements in historical context. She traces his life from childhood through his education, his collaboration with his brother in developing methods to study ecosystems, his contributions to the field of radiation ecology, and his environmental activism.
