Media reviews

"Contributors from Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, the UK, and Canada describe how competition between plant species and succession in plant ecosystems operate in grasslands and grazed pastures. Chapters assess how competition affects botanical structure, productivity, and persistence of pastures and is itself regulated by biological, environmental, and management factors. Intended for graduate students and researchers in plant ecology, ecophysiology, and grassland and rangeland science."--SciTech Book News
