Metabolic Ecology

Omschrijving

A Scaling Approach
One of the first textbooks in this emerging important field ofecology.
Most of ecology is about metabolism: the ways that organisms useenergy and materials. The energy requirements of individuals- their metabolic rates - vary predictably with theirbody size and temperature. Ecological interactions are exchanges ofenergy and materials between organisms and their environments. Sometabolic rate affects ecological processes at all levels:individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems. Each chapterfocuses on a different process, level of organization, or kind oforganism. It lays a conceptual foundation and presents empiricalexamples. Together, the chapters provide an integrated frameworkthat holds the promise for a unified theory of ecology.
The book is intended to be accessible to upper-levelundergraduate, and graduate students, but also of interest tosenior scientists. Its easy-to-read chapters and clearillustrations can be used in lecture and seminar courses. Togetherthey make for an authoritative treatment that will inspire futuregenerations to study metabolic ecology.
