about

Highlighting exciting new research from Japan into community ecology, this book brings mutualistic interactions into focus. During the last two decades, detailed research has shown that mutualistic or commensalistic relations play important roles in biological association, even among speciessharing the same or similar resources. This volume describes synergistic reactions among living organisms, puts forward theoretical explanations, and explores their potential impact on community structure.
