Vertebrates in complex tropical systems by M. L Harmelin-Vivien( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book compares and contrasts the structure of vertebrate communities, from fishes, amphibia, and reptiles to birds and mammals, in two ecosystems considered to be the most species-rich on Earth - the coral reef and the tropical rain forest. The authors address the question of how such a variety of species can coexist, how species diversity relates to patterns and processes on lower trophic levels, and also, how it might have evolved in time. They discuss important factors supporting high biotic diversity, such as sustained primary productivity, resource diversity, and habitat heterogeneity, and examine the applicability of current models of community structure
