Definition

Glossary of Ecology (6th ed.) by Krebs (2009)

  • an integrated and hierarchical set of empirical hypotheses that together explain a significant fraction of scientific observations. The theory of evolution is perhaps the most frequently used theory in ecology.

Glossary of "Life (9th ed.)" by Sadava et al. (2011)

  • A far-reaching explanation of observed facts that is supported by such a wide body of evidence, with no significant contradictory evidence, that it is scientifically accepted as a factual framework. Examples are Newton’s theory of gravity and Darwin’s theory of evolution. (Contrast with hypothesis.)

Glossary of "Environmental Science: Earth as a Living Planet (2nd ed.)" by Botkin & Keller (1998)

  • theories: Scientific models that offer broad, fundamental explanations of related phenomena and are supported by consistent and extensive evidence.
