Plant interactions are an important set of processes that structure plant communities and regulate diversity. Positive interactions among plants have traditionally received little attention from both theoretical and experimental points of view, but there is now a growing body of evidence showing the effects of positive interactions between higher plant species.
This book gives a timely summary of current understanding of the field, with particular emphasis on positive interactions and spatial and temporal gradients. Written by international experts, the text addresses key issues in plant ecology and anthropogenic impacts through reviews, syntheses, and the proposition of new concepts.
In short, the quality and timeliness of this book's contents make it an indispensable tool for PhD students and researchers interested in the organization, functioning and evolution of plant communities and in their conservation and restoration, which cannot be achieved without understanding the biotic interactions that shape ecosystems. -- S.
