Biotic Interactions in the Tropics

Their Role in the Maintenance of Species Diversity

Biotic Interactions in the Tropics

To understand how tropical ecosystems function we need to appreciate not only what plants, animals and microbes they contain, but how they interact with each other. This volume synthesizes the current state of knowledge of tropical biotic interaction, with chapters providing reviews or case studies drawn from research conducted in both Old and New World tropics, including interactions among taxa at all levels. An underlying theme of the volume is revealing the importance of the maintenance of high diversity in tropical regions.


 Reviews:

“Key topics include the maintenance of tree species richness, ant-plant interactions, mycorrhizal fungi, seed dispersal, and pollination biology. An extensive index, literature review, and handsome production make this volume a valuable addition to libraries.”
Choice

"I am convinced this volume will be useful for a variety of readers, ranging from students to experienced researchers in tropical biology."
