Edited By: Lee A Dyer and Aparna Palmer
Synthesizes existing data and provides an outline for future investigations of the chemistry, ecology, and evolution of this taxon, while examining its key themes of Piper as a model genus for ecological and evolutionary studies, the important ecological roles of Piper species in lowland wet forests, and the evolution of distinctive Piper attributes.
From the reviews: "This slim volume approaches comparative biology from a perspective rarely seen in book-length treatments. ! The book's premise is that species-rich lineages such as Piper are convenient models for studying questions of general interest using comparative methods. ! The book is generally well edited ! . The book is also attractively produced. ! How well does the book do in attaining its objectives? Fairly well, given the gaps that exist in our knowledge of the genus." (Doyle McKey, Ecology, Vol. 86 (7), 2005)
