Perspectives in Ecological Theory
is a collection of survey essays
on different areas of theoretical ecology. The topics covered include
individual-population interactions, population-community interactions,
detailed system models, problems of hierarchy and scale, food webs,
host-predator systems, ecological coevolution, resource management,
and conservation of endangered species.
The contributors are writing for their fellow ecologists, and go into the
details of specific theories. But ecology is a broad discipline without
that much common theory, so the resulting essays are also accessible to
the lay reader with a general interest in the biological sciences.
