The ecology and evolution of inducible defenses

Author: Ralph Tollrian; C Drew Harvell
Publisher: Princeton, N.J. : Princeton University Press, ©1999.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Inducible defenses--those often dramatic phenotypic shifts in prey activated by biological agents ranging from predators to pathogens--are widespread in the natural world. Yet research on the inducible defenses used by vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants in terrestrial, marine, and freshwater habitats has largely developed along independent lines. Tollrian and Harvell bring together leading researchers from all  Read more...
