Positive Plant Interactions and Community Dynamics

About this book

Plant interactions are an important set of processes that structure plant communities and regulate diversity. Positive interactions among plants have traditionally received little attention from both theoretical and experimental points of view, but there is now a growing body of evidence showing the effects of positive interactions between higher plant species.

This book gives a timely summary of current understanding of the field, with particular emphasis on positive interactions and spatial and temporal gradients. Written by international experts, the text addresses key issues in plant ecology and anthropogenic impacts through reviews, syntheses, and the proposition of new concepts.

Contents

Large and Small Scale Consequences of Facilitation on Species Diversity in Terrestrial Plant Communities. Biotic Interactions, Biodiversity an Ecosystem Functioning. Mycorrhiza and Facilitation.
