About this book

Explores and synthesizes the long-term studies that have been carried out to understand the fundamental nature of interactions in and between communities. Studies of fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals are included. The studies have been conducted in a variety of habitats - from deserts to rainforests to freshwater and marine habitats - to establish the extent and types of change in communities over several decades.

I admire the enthusiasm, dedication, and persistence of these authors for their interest in the natural history of their systems. --AMERICAN ZOOLOGIST
