2011-06-15T07:00:00Z Despite claims to the contrary, the science of ecology has a long history of building theories. Many ecological theories are mathematical, computational, or statistical, though, and rarely have attempts been made to organize or extrapolate these models into broader theories. The Theory of Ecology brings together some of the most respected and creative theoret...[Read More]

2005-08-11T07:00:00Z This book addresses the fundamental issues of predator-prey interactions, with an emphasis on predation among arthropods, which have been better studied, and for which the database is more extensive than for the large and rare vertebrate predators. The book should appeal to ecologists interested in the broad issue of predation effects on communities.
2012-04-25T07:00:00Z The fossil record contains unique long-term insights into how ecosystems form and function which cannot be determined simply by examining modern systems.
