Ecology of Predator-Prey Interactions , Pedro Barbosa & Ignacio Castellanos

Published in: itune > Life Sciences,Books,Science & Nature > Ecology | Published on 14/Aug/2018 07:03

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.

Microbial Symbioses (Enhanced Edition) , Sébastien Duperron

Published in: itune > Life Sciences,Books,Science & Nature,Ecology > global warming | Published on 08/Aug/2018 17:40

Plants and animals have evolved ever since their appearance in a largely microbial world. Their own cells are less numerous than the microorganisms that they host and with whom they interact closely. The study of these interactions, termed microbial symbioses, has benefited from the development of new conceptual and technical tools. We are gaining an increasing und...[Read More]
