Arthropods of Tropical Forests. Spatio-Temporal Dynamics and Resource Use in the Canopy. 2008. b/w figs. 490 p. gr8vo. Paper bd.

Arthropods are the most diverse group of organisms on our planet and the tropical rainforests represent the most biologically diverse of all ecosystems. This book aims to provide an overview of data collected during recent studies in Australia, Africa, Asia, and South America. The book focuses on the distribution of arthropods and their use of resources in the rainforest canopies, providing a basis forcomparison between the forest ecosystems of the main biogeographical regions. Topics covered include the distribution of arthropods along vertical gradients and the relationship between the soil/litter habitat and the forest canopy. The temporal dynamics of arthropod communities, habitats and food selection are examined within and among tropical tree crowns, as are the effects of forest disturbance. This important book is a valuable addition to the literature used by community ecologists, conservation biologists entomologists, botanists and forestry experts.Content: Part I. Arthropods of Tropical Canopies; Part II. Vertical Stratification in Tropical Forests; Part III. Temporal Patterns in Tropical Canopies; Part IV. Resource Use and Host Specificity in Tropical Canopies; Part V. Synthesis.
