Provides readers with the concepts and practical tools required to understand the maximum entropy principle, and apply it to an understanding of ecological patterns. The theory developed predicts realistic forms for all metrics of ecology that describe patterns in the distribution, abundance, and energetics of species.

Foraging Ecology of Peregrine Falcons (Falco Peregrinus) Along the Colorado River, Grand Canyon, Arizona (Report) , Southwestern Naturalist


Published in: itune > Life Sciences,Books,Science & Nature > global warming | Published on 14/May/2018 22:20

2009-09-01T07:00:00Z
Peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) are versatile, generalist predators, well known for hunting a broad array of species using diverse foraging behaviors, and often achieving high levels of foraging success (e.g., Monneret, 1973; Rogers and Leatherwood, 1981; Smith, 1981; Tucker, 1981; Cade, 1982; Ratcliffe, 1993). Peregrine falcons prey on a wide variety of birds ...[Read More]

During the late 1960s and 1970s, massive herds of poisonous crown-of-thorns starfish suddenly began to infest coral reef communities around the world, leaving in their wake devastation comparable to a burnt-out rainforest. In What is Natural?, Jan Sapp both examines this ecological catastrophe and captures the intense debate among scientists about what caused the c...[Read More]

2017-12-18T08:00:00Z
Metacommunity ecology links smaller-scale processes that have been the provenance of population and community ecology--such as birth-death processes, species interactions, selection, and stochasticity--with larger-scale issues such as dispersal and habitat heterogeneity. Until now, the field has focused on evaluating the relative importance of distinct processes, wi...[Read More]
