Advances in Ecological Research
- Alastair Fitter, University of York, U.K.
- Dave Raffaelli, University of Aberdeen, U.K.
This volume contains papers highlighting the diverse interests of modern ecologists. Areas covered range from modeling terrestrial carbon exchange and storage to the relationship between animal abundance and body size. Other papers address the free-air carbon dioxide enrichment in global change research; generalist predators, interaction strength, and food web stability; delays, demography, and cycles; and spatial root segregation. This volume is essential for all ecologists.View full description
