              Food Webs (MPB-50) (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By McCann, Kevin S.

              Arguing that various classical food web theories can be looked at collectively and in a consistent and testable way, this book synthesizes modern and classical perspectives into a general unified theory. It brings together outcomes from population, community, and ecosystem-level ...approaches under the common currency of energy or material fluxes.

              Fish Ecology, Evolution, and Exploitation: A New Theoretical Synthesis (Hardback)

              By Andersen, Ken H.

              Fish are one of the most important global food sources, supplying a significant share of the world's protein consumption. From stocks of wild Alaskan salmon and North Sea cod to entire fish communities with myriad species, fisheries require careful management to ensure that stock...s remain productive, and mathematical models are essential tools for d

              Ecologists traditionally regard time as part of the background against which ecological interactions play out. In this book, Eric Post argues that time should be treated as a resource used by organisms for growth, maintenance, and offspring production.

              In spite of the fact that parasites represent more than half of all living species of plants and animals, their role in the evolution of life on earth has been substantially underestimated. Here, for the first time within an evolutionary and ecological framework, Peter Price inte...grates the biological attributes that characterize parasites ranging f

              Discusses the methods and problems involved in the demonstration and measurement of natural selection. This work presents the critical evidence for its existence, and places it in an evolutionary perspective. It argues that natural selection can explain the change of frequencies ...of variants, but not their origins.

              Many animals regulate their population density by patterns of behavior that would be easy to explain if the forces of natural selection acted to optimize group properties. But Darwinian selection acts on individuals, not groups, and most simple theories have shown group selection... to be too slow ever to oppose individual selection successfully. In t

              Presents a study of arthropod predador-prey systems. This work shows how many of the components of predation may be simply modeled in order to reveal their effects on the overall dynamics of the interacting populations. It also describes how the biological processes of insect pre...dator-prey, including host-parasitoid interactions may be understood.
