All life on earth occurs in natural assemblages called communities.Community ecology is the study of patterns and processes involvingthese collections of two or more species. Communities are typicallystudied using a diversity of techniques, including observations ofnatural history, statistical descriptions of natural patterns,laboratory and field experiments, and mathematical modelling.Community patterns arise from a complex assortment of processesincluding competition, predation, mutualism, indirect effects,habitat selection, which result in the most complex biologicalentities on earth – including iconic systems such as rainforests and coral reefs.

This book introduces the reader to a balanced coverage ofconcepts and theories central to community ecology, using examplesdrawn from terrestrial, freshwater, and marine systems, andfocusing on  animal, plant, and microbial species. Thehistorical development of key concepts is described usingdescriptions of classic studies, while examples of exciting newdevelopments in recent studies are used to point toward futureadvances in our understanding of community organization.Throughout, there is an emphasis on the crucial interplay betweenobservations, experiments, and mathematical models.

This second updated edition is a valuable resource for advancedundergraduates, graduate students, and  establishedscientists  who seek a broad overview of community ecology.The book has developed from a course in community ecology that hasbeen taught by the author since 1983.

About the Author:

Peter Morin is a leading experimental community ecologist. He is interested in many aspects of community ecology, including predator-prey interactions, food webs, and the causes and consequences of biological diversity.

Review:

“The book arose from courses the author has been givingsince 1983, so is well-tailored to final year graduate andparticularly postgraduate students in ecology, but will also be ofvalue to biodiversity scientists wishing to understand more ofwithin-community interactions.”  (Biodiversity andConservation, 1 October 2012)

“This text is written with the postgraduate ecologist inmind, and the basic concepts, biological and mathematical, areAssumed . . . Given the relatively advanced level at which it ispitched, the text is pleasingly accessible to thenon-specialist.”  (Bulletin of the British EcologicalSociety, 1 June 2012)

“With a strong editorial input to improve readability andthe employment of good graphic design and typography, CommunityEcology could be an excellent, highly useful resource forcoursework and self-study.  Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates throughresearchers/faculty.”  (Choice, 1 April 2012)

"As such I recommend it to anyone involved in teaching introductoryecology at undergraduate level." (Elsevier's BiologicalConservation, 1 January 2012)

"One might query the balance of coverage of various topics butnevertheless this remains the
only textbook exclusively devoted to this scale of study."(Frontiers of Biogeography, 3 March 2011)

"However, conservation biologists have got to be trained incommunity ecology and this is a very good and authoritative bookcovering the basics. As such I recommend it to anyone involved inteaching introductory ecology at undergraduate level." (BiologicalConservation, 12 December 2011)
