About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Emphasis on nonequilibrium in nature
    • Detailed discussions of equilibrium and nonequilibrium conditions in many animal and plant populations and communities, and of zoogeographical patterns
    • A critical evaluation of evidence for interspecific competition
    • A detailed discussion of latitudinal gradients in species diversity (why are there so many species in the tropics) and their causes
    • A cutting edge account of major problems in ecology
