9780521674553: Nonequilibrium Ecology (Ecology, Biodiversity and Conservation)

Ecology has long been shaped by ideas that stress the sharing of resources and the competition for those resources, and by the assumption that populations and communities typically exist under equilibrium conditions in habitats saturated with both individuals and species. However, much evidence contradicts these assumptions and it is likely that nonequilibrium is much more widespread than might be expected. This book is unique in focusing on nonequilibrium aspects of ecology, providing evidence for nonequilibrium and equilibrium in populations (and metapopulations), in extant communities and in ecological systems over evolutionary time.

Book Description :

The idea that nature is in balance, or equilibrium, is a central concept in biology and goes back to Linnaeus and Darwin. The prevailing view has been that equilibrium is the normal condition, perhaps occasionally disrupted by external influences. Evidence for nonequilibrium is often neglected. This book shows that nonequilibrium is indeed more widespread than equilibrium. Evidence provided in this book comes from fossil history and from many studies of plant and animal populations and communities, as well as studies on the geographical distribution of organisms.

About the Author :

Klaus Rohde is Professor Emeritus at the University of New England, Australia.

Description du livre CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ecology has long been shaped by ideas that stress the sharing of resources and the competition for those resources, and by the assumption that populations and communities typically exist under equilibrium conditions in habitats saturated with both individuals and species. However, much evidence contradicts these assumptions and it is likely that nonequilibrium is much more widespread than might be expected. This book is unique in focusing on nonequilibrium aspects of ecology, providing evidence for nonequilibrium and equilibrium in populations (and metapopulations), in extant communities and in ecological systems over evolutionary time, including nonequilibrium due to recent and present mass extinctions. The assumption that competition is of overriding importance is central to equilibrium ecology, and much space is devoted to its discussion. As communities of some taxa appear to be shaped more by competition than others, an attempt is made to find an explanation for these differences. N° de réf. du libraire AAC9780521674553
