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

9 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 353 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

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 129 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)
