About this book

Language: English

Plant-animal interactions, both mutualistic and antagonistic, play a crucial role in the diversification of plants and animals, and are important in functioning of communities in their natural habitats. The mutual interactions between flowering plants and animals, in pollination and seed dispersal, largely determine the reproductive success of the flowering plants. Maintenance of these ecoservices is critical for the sustainability of India's biodiversity. India, with its rich biodiversity and leveling of crop yields in recent years would benefit from research in the area of plant-animal interactions.

This volume includes chapters on various aspects of mutualistic plant-animal interactions. In particular the fundamental and applied aspects of ecoservices – pollination and seed dispersal are covered comprehensively. It also covers tritrophic interactions and the potential of genomics in studies on plant-animal interactions. The book will be of interest to post-graduate students, teachers and researchers in the areas of biology, ecology, botany, zoology, agri-horticulture, forestry, and conservation biology.
