Ant-Plant Interactions: Impacts of Humans on Terrestrial by Paulo S. Oliveira,Suzanne Koptur

By Paulo S. Oliveira,Suzanne Koptur

Ants are the most dominant insect kin on the earth, and flowering vegetation were the dominant plant workforce on land for greater than a hundred million years. In contemporary a long time, human actions have degraded average environments with remarkable pace and scale, making it more and more obvious that interspecific interactions differ not just lower than various ecological stipulations and throughout habitats, but in addition based on anthropogenic international swap. this is often the 1st quantity completely dedicated to the anthropogenic results at the interactions among those significant elements of terrestrial ecosystems. a main workforce of members file their learn from a number of temperate and tropical ecosystems around the world, together with South, critical and North the US, Africa, Japan, Polynesia, Indonesia and Australia. It presents an in-depth precis of the present figuring out for researchers already familiar with insect-plant interactions, but is written at a degree to supply a window into the ecology of ant-plant interactions for the commonly uninitiated foreign clinical community.
