Community ecology

by Peter J. Morin | 22 July 2011
Category: Science Academic
Synopsis
All life on earth occurs in natural assemblages called communities.Community ecology is the study of patterns and processes involvingthese collections of two or more species. Communities are typicallystudied using a diversity of techniques, including observations ofnatural history, statistical descriptions of natural patterns,laboratory and field experiments, and mathematical modelling.Community patterns arise from a complex assortment of processesincluding competition, predation, mutualism, indirect effects,habitat selection, which result in the most complex biologicalentities on earth - including iconic systems such as rainforests and coral reefs. This book introduces the reader to a balanced coverage ofconcepts and theories central to community ecology, using examplesdrawn from terrestrial, freshwater, and marine systems, andfocusing on animal, plant, and microbial species. Thehistorical development of key concepts is described usingdescriptions of classic studies, while examples of exciting newdevelopments in recent studies are used to point toward futureadvances in our understanding of community organization.Throughout, there is an emphasis on the crucial interplay betweenobservations, experiments, and mathematical models. This second updated edition is a valuable resource for advancedundergraduates, graduate students, and establishedscientists who seek a broad overview of community ecology.The book has developed from a course in community ecology that hasbeen taught by the author since 1983. Figures and tables can be downloaded for free from www.wiley.com/go/morin/communityecology
