    In this undergraduate level book we look at the beautiful coral reefs and mangrove swamps of the tropics. We study coral anatomy and growth and look at their global distribution and ecology. We discover the geological aspects of coral reef formation and look at how simple coral animals evolved throughout their geological history. It covers tropical montane ecology, riverine ecosystems, savanna, dry forest--and more. Tropical Ecology begins with a historical overview followed by a sweeping discussion of biogeography and evolution, and then introduces students to the unique and complex structure of tropical rain forests.

    Tropical Stream Ecology describes the main features of tropical streams and their ecology. It covers the major physico-chemical features, important processes such as primary production and organic-matter transformation, as well as the main groups of consumers: invertebrates, fishes and other vertebrates.

The result is a book unlike any other available in tropical herpetology. Covering a wide array of subjects, Ecology and Evolution in the Tropics is the first book in more than two decades to broadly review research on tropical amphibians and reptiles.

A tribute to Savage and an invaluable addition to the herpetological literature, this work. This book is about tropical biology in action- how biologists grapple with the ecology and evolution of the great species diversity in tropical rainforests and coral reefs.

Tropical rainforests are home to 50% of all the plant and animal species on earth, though they cover only about 2% of Cited by: 2. Ecology and Evolution in the Tropics by Maureen Donnelly,available Ecology and Evolution in the Tropics book Book Depository with free delivery : Maureen Donnelly.

Tropical Ecology. This note utilizes an integrative approach to examine conservation, sustainability, and biodiversity of tropical ecosystems. Topics covered includes: Tropical life zones, The rainforest and how it functions, Evolution in the tropics, Tropical plants, Tropical plant compounds and Bioprospecting, Plant-Animal Interactions, Tropical birds and mammals, Tropical fish, amphibians.

Accordingly, researchers and professionals interested in these antagonistic interaction systems will find both an overview of the field with special emphasis on the tropics, and access to the necessary conceptual framework for various topics in ecology, evolution and systematics.

Tropical Ecology begins with a historical overview followed by a sweeping discussion of biogeography and evolution, and then introduces students to the unique and complex structure of tropical rain forests.

Other topics include the processes that influence 5/5(1). Ecology and Evolution requires that all appropriate steps be taken in obtaining informed consent of any and all human subjects participating in the research comprising the manuscript submitted for review and possible publication, and a statement to this effect must be included in the Methods section of the manuscript.

Adaptive radiation, which results when a single ancestral species gives rise to many descendants, each adapted to a different part of the environment, is possibly the single most important source of biological diversity in the living world.

One of the best-studied examples involves Caribbean Anolis lizards. Evolution in the Tropics. by Theodosius Dobzhansky () Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: Original pagination indicated within double brackets. My thanks to American Scientist for permitting the reprint. Citation: American Scientist 38 ():   Tropical Ecology is devoted to all aspects of fundamental and applied ecological research in tropical and sub-tropical ecosystems.

Nevertheless, the cutting-edge research in new ecological concepts, methodology and reviews on contemporary themes, not necessarily confined to tropics and sub-tropics, may also be considered for publication at the. Big Questions in Ecology and Evolution is a curiosity-driven book, written in an accessible way so as to appeal to a broad audience.

It is very deliberately not a formal text book, but something designed to transmit the excitement and breadth of the field by discussing a number of major questions in ecology and evolution and how they have been 5/5(1).

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.

This chapter focuses on tropical birds that exhibit different ecology. In the tropical zones, a year is divided into the dry season and wet season unlike the spring, summer, winter, and fall seasons of the temperate zone.

The timing and length of the dry and wet seasons vary with locale and latitude. Earth's tropical ecosystems have witnessed several extinctions and a dramatic reduction of the range and abundance of large reptile species, which is directly related to the rise of early and modern humans.

The occurrence of such extinctions, range reduction, species loss, and the consequences for several paramount ecosystem processes are poorly documented compared to.

Subjects: Amphibians -- Ecology -- Tropics. Reptiles -- Ecology. This book beautifully illustrates the ability to combine wide-ranging data with thoughtful questions. It offers a basis for further research in this respect, but is also of general interest to all students of ecology, evolution and behaviour.

(Entomologia Generalis, Vol. 22 No. 1)Author: Yosiaki Itô. Tropical Environments is still relatively compact, however, and I feel it is not so much targeted at the mainstream student of tropical ecology and conservation, but at those from all walks of natural and social sciences who might be interested in the tropics.

Although the book could be used in an upper undergraduate course, its main strength. Cambridge Core - Plant Sciences - Seedling Ecology and Evolution - edited by Mary Allessio Leck. This novel book provides a fresh perspective on the study of the evolution of parental care based on contributions from some of the top researchers in the field.

It provides evidence that the dynamic nature of family interactions, and particularly the potential for co-evolution among family members, has contributed to the great diversity of.This book is about tropical biology in action- how biologists grapple with the ecology and evolution of the great species diversity in tr."Tropical Ecology has 15 chapters and is broadly organized into four sections: a large section dealing with biodiversity in tropical rain forests, a section on productivity and nutrient cycling, a section on other ecosystems in the tropics, and a final section on human ecology in the tropics, including relevant issues in conservation.
