About the Authors
  • As researchers try to predict the effects of human modification at all trophic levels and mediate the impact of rapid environmental change, it has become clear it is no longer a matter of agreeing that both bottom-up and top-down forces play important roles in diverse ecosystems. Rather, the question is: how do these forces interact across aquatic and terrestrial systems? Written by leading experts in the field, this book presents a unique synthesis of trophic relationships within and across ecosystems that is a valuable foundation for the development of cross-system, multidisciplinary research. It also provides new insights into population biology and community ecology and examines the interactive effects of bottom-up and top-down forces on biodiversity at each trophic level. A one-stop resource for learning about bottom-up and top-down interactions, this book encourages discussion and collaboration among researchers to identify similarities and differences in trophic interactions across aquatic and terrestrial systems.

    • Provides a unique review of the interaction of bottom-up and top-down processes, enabling the reader to learn about the relative strength of trophic interactions and what drives these patterns in diverse ecosystems
    • Offers a comparison of trophic interactions in diverse aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems which will stimulate communication and cooperation among those working in separate but conceptually related systems
    • Highlights diverse approaches to trophic interactions within and across ecosystems, providing a unique perspective on the comparative interactions of bottom-up and top-down processes across aquatic and terrestrial systems

  • Editors

    Torrance C. Hanley, Northeastern University, Boston
    Torrance Hanley is an aquatic community ecologist, whose research focuses on the role of diversity in trophic interactions in freshwater and marine systems. She is also interested in how inter- and intra-specific diversity of producer and consumer species impacts population and community dynamics, trophic interactions, and ecosystem function.

    Kimberly J. La Pierre, University of California, Berkeley
    Kimberly La Pierre is a terrestrial community ecologist, whose research focuses on the effects of global change on trophic interactions and ecosystem function. She is also interested in drivers of plant invasions, including the role of herbivory and microbial mutualisms.
