 Summary

A comprehensive framework for understanding species coexistence Coexistence is the central concept in community ecology, but an understanding of this concept requires that we study the actual mechanisms of species interactions. Coexistence in Ecology examines the major features of these mechanisms for species that coexist at different positions in complex food webs, and derives empirical tests from model predictions. Exploring the various challenges species face, Mark McPeek systematically builds a model food web, beginning with an ecosystem devoid of life and then adding one species at a time. With the introduction of each new species, he evaluates the properties it must possess to invade a community and quantifies the changes in the abundances of other species that result from a successful invasion. McPeek continues this process until he achieves a multitrophic level food web with many species coexisting at each trophic level, from omnivores, mutualists, and pathogens to herbivores, carnivores, and basic plants. He then describes the observational and experimental empirical studies that can test the theoretical predictions resulting from the model analyses. Synthesizing decades of theoretical research in community ecology, Coexistence in Ecology offers new perspectives on how to develop an empirical program of study rooted in the natural histories of species and the mechanisms by which they actually interact with one another.

 Summary

"Ecohydrology is the study of the twoway interaction between the hydrological cycle and ecosystems. More broadly, it is the science of the linkages between life and water on Earth. On the one hand, the space and time variability of the hydrological cycle controls the water availability for ecosystems; on the other hand, ecosystems, especially through transpiration by vegetation, control the main pathway by which water returns to the atmosphere from land. The terrestrial water cycle also drives some of the dynamics of soil organic matter, 7 8 CHAPTER INTRO DUCTION Abiotic processes (water and energy cycles) Biotic processes (carbon and nutrient cycles, vegetation and soil microbes) 2way interaction Society Agroecosystems (60% of rainfall goes in transpiration in agricultural land Rule of thumb: 1 kg of bread requires 1 m3 of water) 2way interaction Figure 1.1: Ecohydrology is characterized by the feedbacks between hydrological and ecological processes, involving numerous biotic and abiotic components, as well as by the growing interactions with the social components, especially ftwowayg through agroecosystems. microbial biomass, and the related nutrient cycling. These in turn not only a ect the vegetation dynamics but also impact the hydraulic and thermodynamic properties of soil, thereby directly acting on the partitioning of water and energy uxes at the landatmosphere interface. The interaction between water balance and plants is responsible for some of the fundamental di erences among biomes (e.g., forests, grasslands, savannas) and for the developments of their spacetime patterns. Thus one of the rst objectives of ecohydrology is to understand the intertwined dynamics of climate, soil, and vegetation. This interaction is especially interesting in waterlimited ecosystems, where water is a limiting factor not only because of its scarcity but also because of its intermittent and unpredictable appearance. Many important practical issues depend on the quantitative understanding of the ecohydrological processes, including environmental preservation and proper management of soil and water resources. A solid scientic foundation of sustainable development and ecoagriculture must take into account the twoway interaction between biosphere and hydrosphere, as well as include a quantitative description of the human interference with these processes (see Fig. 1.1)" Provided by publisher.
