Forces of nature and human intervention lead to innumerable local, regional and sometimes global changes in plant community patterns. Irrespective of the causes and the intensity of change, ecosystems are often naturally able to recover most of their attributes through natural succession. In this thoughtful and provocative new book, Fakhri Bazzaz integrates and synthesises information on how disturbance changes the environment, how species function, coexist, and share or compete for resources in populations and communities, and how species replace each other over successional time. Furthermore, the book shows how a diverse array of plant species have been used to examine fundamental questions in plant ecology by integrating physiological, population and community ecology. Graduate students and research workers in plant ecology, global change, conservation and restoration will find the perspective and analysis offered by this book an exciting contribution to the development of our understanding of plant successional change.

'I will strongly recommend this book to my students as a source of ideas, literature and general inspiration ... it is first-rate, and it is a unique mine of information and ideas that cuts a huge swathe across plant ecology ... It is very well produced, and the paperback version is excellent value. If you are interested in plants and ecosystems, buy a copy!' Colin Prentice, Endeavour
'... researchers interested in learning how they might link physiological, population and community ecology in understanding any ecosystem will have much to gain by reading this book.' Philip W. Rundel, Trends in Ecology and Evolution
'This book is filled with a wealth of information and ideas that, no doubt, will serve as a source of inspiration for students and research investigations for years to come.' H. A. Mooney, Tree Physiology
'The book is illustrated with a huge number of clear figures, its language is easy to understand, the cited references are numerous and valuable. Besides its high scientific value the book makes an interesting and fascinating read.' K. Szente, Journal of Plant Physiology
' ... a gem: self-contained in style, reference and content, a first calling point for all my future enquiries about successional processes.' Annals of Botany Company
