About this book

This book addresses success and dominance in ecosystems with a mastership matured over decades of devoted, critical research. Defining 'success' as evolutionary longevity of a clade (a species and its descendents), and 'dominance' as abundance of a clade controlling the appropriation of biomass and energy, Wilson exemplifies his subject by referring to eusocial insects, especially termites and ants but also bees and wasps.S
