This process of 'ecological speciation' has seen a large body of particularly focused research in the last years, and a review and synthesis of the theoretical and empirical literature is now timely.

The book begins by clarifying what ecological speciation is, its alternatives, and the predictions that can be used to test for it/5(9). This comprehensive reference book details the life history and ecology of the fish species that occupy the estuarine and coastal habitats along the eastern United States and Canada.

Specifically, ecological processes are central to the formation of new species when barriers to gene flow (reproductive isolation) evolve between populations as a result of ecologically-based divergent natural selection.

A philosophical and narrative memoir, Ecology and Experience is a thoughtful, engaging recounting of author Richard J. Borden’s life entwined in an overview of the intellectual and institutional history of human ecology—a story of life wrapped in a life story.

Borden shows that attempts to bridge the mental and environmental arenas are uncertain, but that rigid.

This has been inspired, in large part, by the conservation concerns associated with numerical declines in several sea duck species and populations, as well as a growing appreciation for their interesting ecological attributes.

In the mangrove identified as the southernmost distributional limit, three plots of 25 m 2 were established in order to characterize its forest structure, using the method proposed by Cintron and Schaeffer-Novelli () and Schaeffer-Novelli and Cintrón ().For each plot, the mean height, density of live trunks, number of trunks per tree, basal area, and mean trunk diameter at Cited by: Begon, Townsend, and Harper's "Ecology" has long been regarded as the definitive textbook on all aspects of ecology.
