Body size : the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems

Author: A G Hildrew; D G Raffaelli; Ronni Edmonds-Brown
Publisher: Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2007.
Series: Ecological reviews.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Document   Computer File : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Ecologists have long struggled to predict features of ecological systems, such as the numbers and diversity of organisms. The wide range of body sizes in ecological communities, from tiny microbes to large animals and plants, is emerging as the key to prediction. This book examines the importance of body size.
