About this book

As one of the most quantitative of ecological subdisciplines, resources competition is a central area of ecology. Recently research into this area has increased dramatically and resource competition models have become more complex. The characterisation of this phenomenon is therefore the aim of this book. It seeks to identify the unifying principles emerging from experimental and theoretical approaches as well as the differences between organisms, illustrating that greater knowledge of resource competition will benefit human and environmental welfare.


Contents

Theoretical and experimental foundations; experimental studies of resource competition; critiques; nonequilibrium resource competition; competition within food webs; spatial heterogeneity; competition for light; resource competition and evolution; applications; medicine.
