The ecology of trees in the tropical rain forest.

The ecology of trees in the tropical rain forest. I. M. Turner.
The ecology of trees in the tropical rain forest.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2001. Octavo, laminated boards, illustrations.

A summary of contemporary understanding of the ecology of tropical rain-forest trees, with particular emphasis on comparative ecology.
Current knowledge of the ecology of tropical rain-forest trees is limited, with detailed information available for perhaps only a few hundred of the many thousand of species that occur. Yet a good understanding of the trees is essential to unravelling the workings of the forest itself. This book aims to summarise contemporary understanding of the ecology of tropical rain-forest trees. The emphasis is on comparative ecology, an approach that can help to identify possible adaptive trends and evolutionary constraints and which may also lead to a workable ecological classification for tree species, conceptually simplifying the rain-forest community and making it more amenable to analysis. Also available in paperback [stock id 31202].
