Choi, Sangdun. (2007). Introduction to Systems Biology. New York: Humana Press.
There is a lot of viable information in this book. The most important thing to consider in this book is the makeup of an ecosystem. It all starts with water and how salinity levels in the water affect the type of organisms that can live there. The author completely draws examples of estuaries, such as the Great Salt Lake, to analyze the difference in that ecosystem compared to the ecosystems of other places. Specific, concise and information filled, this book is a great source.
