not yet rated|write a review
This advanced textbook is the first to explore the consequences of plant dispersal for population and community dynamics, spatial patterns, and evolution. It successfully integrates a rapidly expanding body of theoretical and empirical research.DT The first comprehensive treatment of plant dispersal set within a population frameworkDT Examines both the processes and consequence of dispersalDT Spans the entire range of research, from natural history and collection of empirical data to modeling and evolutionary theoryDT Provides a clear and simple explanation of mathematical concepts bDispersal in Plants/b is aimed principally at graduates interested in plant ecology, although given the strong current interests in invasive species and global change it will also be of interest and use to a broad audience of plant scientists and ecologists seeking an authoritative overview of thisrapidly expanding field.
