About the Authors
  • Recent research in the rapidly developing field of molecular, genetic and modelling techniques provides valuable new tools for addressing complex ecological questions and considerable insights into our understanding of the dynamics of populations and communities. The diverse range of topics covered in this volume includes community dynamics in soils and water, gene flow and spatial dynamics, and the evolution of the pathogenic and symbiotic relationships. Organisms studied range from bacteria, viruses and fungi to insects, plants and fish.

    • There has been an explosion of interest in the applications of new molecular techniques to solving ecological problems
    • A team of distinguished contributors cover a broad range of topics
    • Includes material of value to both theoretical and applied ecologists
