Summary:
"Biological diversity, the variety of living organisms on Earth, is traditionally viewed as the diversity of taxa, and species in particular. However, other facets of diversity also need to be considered for a comprehensive understanding of evolutionary and ecological processes. This novel book demonstrates the advantages of adopting a functional approach to diversity in order to improve our understanding of the  Read more...

Notes: "This book is based on 'Diversité fonctionnelle des Plantes - Traits des Organismes, Structure des Communautés, Propriétés des Ecosystèmes' authored by Eric Garnier and Marie-Laure Navas, and published in 2013 by De Boeck. It has been substantially enriched compared to the French version, and some chapters have been extensively revised and completed"--Page vii.

Publisher Synopsis

Functional ecology has proven productive in understanding ecosystem structure and function, but currently, it is often not widely addressed in general ecology texts. Therefore, this book will be Read more...

   schema:description ""Biological diversity, the variety of living organisms on Earth, is traditionally viewed as the diversity of taxa, and species in particular. However, other facets of diversity also need to be considered for a comprehensive understanding of evolutionary and ecological processes. This novel book demonstrates the advantages of adopting a functional approach to diversity in order to improve our understanding of the functioning of ecological systems and their components. The focus is on plants, which are major components of these systems, and for which the functional approach has led to major scientific advances over the last 20 years. Plant Functional Diversity presents the rationale for a trait-based approach to functional diversity in the context of comparative plant ecology and agroecology. It demonstrates how this approach can be used to address a number of highly debated questions in plant ecology pertaining to plant responses to their environment, controls on plant community structure, ecosystem properties, and the services these deliver to human societies. This research level text will be of particular relevance and use to graduate students and professional researchers in plant ecology, agricultural sciences and conservation biology" -- Provided by publisher."@en ;
