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

11 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 369 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

Éléments d'écologie écologie fondamentale by François Ramade( Book )

2 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in French and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'écologie scientifique est la science globale des relations des organismes avec leur monde extérieur. Cet ouvrage réconcilie deux approches. La première privilégie les mécanismes de fonctionnement des écosystèmes : elle est essentielle à la compréhension des systèmes complexes que l'on dénomme aujourd'hui paysages. La seconde s'intéresse à la dynamique des populations et des peuplements. Elle est au centre des études portant sur la biodiversité. Les concepts fondamentaux sont exposés et illustrés par de très nombreux documents et résultats issus des recherches les plus actuelles. (Somabec)

The study of instinct by Niko Tinbergen( Book )

6 editions published between 1953 and 1980 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nikolaas Tinbergen won a Nobel Prize in 1973 for his pioneering studies in animal behavior. The Study of Instinct, Tinbergen's first major work, introduced the subject of ethology to an American audience more than forty years ago, and it is still considered one of the best introductions to the field. Long out of print, this reissue of the 1969 edition allows a new generation of readers to explore this classic for themselves. In The Study of Instinct, Tinbergen attempts to organize the study of animal behavior into a coherent whole, focusing on how animals behave in response to stimuli, how physical and neurological characteristics shape instinct, how individual animals develop behavioral patterns, and how they adapt to changing conditions. He illustrates his discussion with fascinating examples taken from his own and other scientists' study of animals. Many of his renowned experiments using models of animals to test hypotheses about behavior are described, including his well-known study of the stickleback fish, in which he shows that it is indeed the red color of their undersides that allows males to single each other out for attack during their springtime competition
