Meta-Ecosystem Dynamics: Understanding Ecosystems Through the Transformation and Movement of Matter by Frederic Guichard
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 112 Pages | ISBN : 3030834530 | 14.4 MB
This book presents current meta-ecosystem models and their derivation from classical ecosystem and metapopulation theories. Specifically, it reviews recent modelling efforts that have emphasized the role of nonlinear dynamics on spatial and food web networks, and which have cast their implications within the context of spatial synchrony and ecological stoichiometry. It suggests that these recent advances naturally lead to a generalization of meta-ecosystem theories to spatial fluxes of matter that have both a trophic and non-trophic impact on species.
