About this book

Nutrients can become limiting resources in ecological systems, and the way in which they are recycled or exhausted is of great importance to the growth and stability of populations, and their resistance to perturbations. This textbook presents a major synthesis of these important topics.


General concepts of nutrient flux and stability; nutrients and autotrophs; variable internal nutrient levels; effects of nutrients on autotroph-hervivore interactions; herbivores and nutrient recycling; nutrient interactions of detritus and decomposers; nutrient limitation and food webs; competition and nutrients; disturbances to nutrient-limited food webs; effects of spatial extent; implications for global change.
