9780521426343: 001: The Ecology of Bird Communities (Volume 1, Foundations and Patterns)(Cambridge Studies in Ecology)

These two books represent a synthesis and critical evaluation of studies conducted on bird communities, or sets of bird species that occur together. Drawing from studies conducted throughout the world, they review in detail what is known about the patterns of organization of such communities and the factors, such as competition, predation, past history, climate, habitat or disturbance that may determine these patterns. In Volume 1, the author considers why the avian community ecologists ask the questions they do, and how they have proceeded to answer them. The questions have generally involved both "what" (pattern) and "why" (process) components. Most of the volume is devoted to a critical evaluation of the patterns of bird communities. In Volume 2, the author considers how community organization patterns have been explained in terms of causal processes, how the operation of those processes has been determined, and how the patterns and our efforts to discern and understand them are influenced by the complexity and variability of natural environments.

Book Description:

Drawing from studies conducted throughout the world, this study reviews in detail what is known about the patterns of organization of bird communities and the factors, such as competition, predation, past history, climate, habitat or disturbance that may determine these patterns.

From the Back Cover:

Processes and Variations, discusses the ways in which bird community patterns have been interpreted. It describes how ecologists have gone about identifying the factors believed to influence the patterns of organization of of bird communities and examines how the complexity and variability of natural environments may influence efforts to discern and understand the nature of these communities.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The two volumes of John Wiens Ecology of Bird Communities, first published in 1992, are recognised as having applications and importance beyond the study of birds to the wider study of ecology in general. The books contain a detailed synthesis of our understanding of the patterns of organisation of bird communities and of the factors that may determine them, drawing from studies from all over the world. The author, however, does more than simply review findings in bird community ecology. By emphasizing how proper logic and methods have or have not been followed and how different viewpoints have developed historically and have led to controversy, he extends the scope of these books far beyond the study of birds. Volume 1 Foundations and Patterns explores why avian community ecologists ask the questions they do and what philosophical and methodological approaches they have used to answer such questions. Most of the book is devoted to a critical evaluation of what is known about the nature and organisation of bird communities. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521426343
