About this book

Autecology: Organisms, Interactions and Environmental Dynamics spells out the theoretical structure, methodology and philosophy of the science of autecology. The autecological approach focuses on the interactions of individual organisms (and their species-specific adaptations) with the spatio-temporal dynamics of their environment as a basis for interpreting patterns of diversity and abundance in natural systems. This organism-based approach to ecological interpretation provides a strong alternative to more traditional approaches and relates mechanistically to the underlying disciplines of anatomy, physiology, and behavior. Autecology: Organisms, Interactions and Environmental Dynamics includes illustrations, specific examples, graphs, maps, and other diagrams.
