This volume contains papers highlighting the diverse interests of modern ecologists. All areas of ecology are covered: from the current concerns over changes in CO2 levels and its affects on the Earth's vegetation to the unique Cichlid fish populations in Lake Tanganika, whose structure is important for other organismal populations, including humans.
