9780709932383: The Biology of mutualism :: ecology and evolution

Mutualism, a relationship between two organisms in which each receives benefit from the association without harming the other, is best illustrated by the interdependence of flowers and their insect pollinators. In this book, leading U.S. and Canadian population biologists discuss the ecological strategies and evolutionary constraints that govern the maintenance of mutualistic relationships. The book will have broad appeal among ecologists, population biologists, evolutionary biologists, and students.
