Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sir Arthur George Tansley (15 August 1871 - 25 November 1955) was an English botanist who was a pioneer in the science of ecology. He obtained his degree in Biological Science in 1896, with specialization in botany and zoology. From the start, he was much influenced by the Danish plant ecologist Eugenius Warming. He championed the term ecosystem in 1935 and ecotope in 1939. He was one of the founders of the British Ecological Society, and editor of the Journal of Ecology for twenty years. The botany journal New Phytologist, which Tansley founded in 1902, publishes a special paper in each issue called the "Tansley Review." This series, featuring articles that synthesize current trends in botanical thought, was named after Tansley in recognition of his wide interests and importance to the discipline as a whole. The 1926 Aims and methods in the study of vegetation which Tansley and Thomas Ford Chipp edited for the British Empire vegetation committee was extremely influential not just in defining ecological methods but in highlighting the need for a complete inventory of the empire's "vegetational assets."
