    Description

    Elsevier Effects of Resource Distribution on Animal Plant Interactions 1992 Edition by Mark D. Hunter, Takayuki Ohgushi, Peter W. Price

    Aimed primarily at advanced graduate students and professional biologists, this book explores the degree to which animal*b1plant interactions are determined by plant and animal variability. Many of the patterns seen in natural communities appear to result from cascading effects up as well as down the trophic system. Variability among primary producers can influence animal and plant population quality and dynamics, community structure, and the evolution of animal*b1plant interations. Table of Contents : M.D. Hunter and P.W. Price, Introduction: Plants as a Variable Resource Base for Animals. M.C. Rossiter, The Impact of Resource Variation on Population Quality in Herbivorous Insects: A Critical Aspect of Population Dynamics. R.S.
