Ecosystems are complex and enigmatic entities that are ultimately our life support systems. This book explores developments that unfold when math and physics meet ecology. Leading ecologists examine ecosystems from theoretical, experimental, and empirical viewpoints. The book begins by simplifying and synthesizing nature's complex relationships. It then moves on to explore the mapping between food web structure and function and ends with the role of theory in integrating different research areas.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book presents a baker's dozen of chapters by an impressive list of researchers in the field. ... most papers revolve around mathematical analyses of complex systems, emphasizing generalities all the while ensuring relevance to the field. ... In addition to making valuable contributions to research, therefore, the book also could serve as a text for graduate students in ecology wishing to bolster their background in theory." (P. A. Rossignol, Environmental Biology of Fishes, Vol. 83, 2008)
