For over sixty years, understanding the causes of multiannual cycles in animal populations has been a central issue in ecology. This book brings together ten of the leaders in this field to examine the major hypotheses and recent evidence in the field, and to establish that trophicinteractions are an important factor in driving at least some of the major regular oscillations in animal populations that have long puzzled ecologists.
Alan Berryman is at Washington State University.
