Peter W. Price, Mark D. Hunter, in Population Dynamics, I. Introduction Although population dynamics is a centerpiece in ecology, there is less emphasis in the field than should be expected. In a recent review, research papers in population ecology as a broad area outnumbered those on communities and ecosystems 5 to 1 in some major journals during the . Provides numerous case studies of plant-mammal interactions from various savanna ecosystems; Savanna Woody Plants and Large Herbivores is a valuable addition to those in fields such as ecology, wildlife and conservation biology, natural resource management, and environmental science.
Ecology (from Greek: οἶκος, "house", or "environment"; -λογία, "study of") is a branch of biology concerning interactions among organisms and their biophysical environment, which includes both biotic and abiotic components. Topics of interest include the biodiversity, distribution, biomass, and populations of organisms, as well as cooperation and competition within and between . This seminal book synthesizes studies in large herbivore ecology and most importantly raised questions on the role of body size in ungulate biology and the influence of megaherbivores on ecosystem processes.

Serengeti II: Dynamics, Management, and Conservation of an Ecosystem brings together twenty years of research by leading scientists to provide the most most thorough understanding to date of the spectacular Serengeti-Mara ecosystem in East Africa, home to one of the largest and most diverse populations of animals in the world. Building on the groundwork laid by the classic Serengeti: Dynamics Reviews: 2. I feel a little guilty rating this book because I did not read it cover to cover. The book is essentially a large collection of scientific articles covering plant/herbivore interactions, predator behavioral ecology (I liked the wild dog articles in particular), and herbivore and predator population dynamics (like a lot of applied ecology, many of the studies are concerned with determining 4/5(1).

Large herbivore ecology, ecosystem dynamics, and conservation. [Kjell Danell;] Large herbivore ecology "For the purposes of this book, we define large herbivores as even-toed (Artiodactyla) and odd-toed ungulates (Perissodactyla) over 5 kg, and elephants (Proboscidea)".
These shortcomings do not greatly distract from the value of this book. Overall, Large Herbivore Ecology, Ecosystem Dynamics and Conservation provides a very good overview of large mammal impacts on ecological processes and species in terrestrial systems, particularly for northern temperate and boreal systems.
Large herbivores are the major drivers for forming the shape and function of terrestrial ecosystems. This book addresses the scientifically based action plans to manage both the large herbivore populations and their habitats worldwide.
It covers the processes by which large herbivores not only affect their environment (e.g. grazing) but. The state of affairs for this field is illustrated by a recent book on large herbivore ecology and ecosystem dynamics (Danell et al., ), with 8 chapters on either nutrient cycling and/or plant.

Large Herbivore Ecology, Ecosystem Dynamics and Conservation The major drivers forming the shape and function of terrestrial ecosystems are large herbivores.
These animals modify primary production, nutrient cycles, soil properties and ﬁre regimes, which all have an impact on the ecology of other organisms. Most. Domestic and wild large mammalian herbivores occur on every continent except Antarctica.

From the Publisher. Customer : $ Extensive grazing and browsing by domestic and wild herbivores shape the vegetation composition, structure and dynamics of many terrestrial ecosystems. This volume investigates how large herbivores not only influence the structure and distribution of the vegetation, but also affect nutrient flows and the responses of associated fauna.
