Insect Ecology: An Ecosystem Approach | Timothy D. Schowalter

 

Dr. Timothy Schowalter has created a unique, updated treatment of insect ecology. He looks at how insects adapt to environmental conditions and how they have the ability to substantially alter their environment.

Covering a range of topics including from how individual insects respond to local changes in the environment and affect resource distribution, to how entire insect communities have the capacity to modify ecosystem conditions.

There are chapters on ecosystem structure and function, and how herbivores, pollinators and seed predators drive ecosystem dynamics and contribute to ecosystem stability.
