Population Biology of Plant Pathogens is structured to explain the wonders of evolutionary phenomena in plant pathogens in a logical and orderly fashion - Chapters one through six address foundational concepts in population genetics, such as genetic markers, genetic diversity, mutation and random genetic drift, natural selection, and migration. This book calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure. Biodiversity creates a framework for analyzing the problem and searching for solutions. ( views) Dictionary of Ecology by Herbert C. Hanson - Philosophical Library,
Pollination is one of the most critical events in sexual reproduction of flowering plants. Pollination is the basis of gene flow and genetic recombination. Studies on pollination ecology were prevalent even before Darwin; they became intense after Darwin formulated the concept of co-evolution between flowers and pollinators. Ecology Decompose complex organic molecules and return to the soil and air the elements needed for growth of all organisms. Participate in complex biogeochemical webs that concentrate minerals—iron, manganese, copper, and others.
the diverse areas that comprise modern plant reproductive ecology. This special issue of the Journal of Plant Ecology on plant reproductive ecology, edited by my colleagues Shuang-Quan Huang, Wan-Jin Liao and Da-Yong Zhang, is an impressive testimony to the recent accomplishments of Chinese plant ecologists. Ecology, Genetics and Evolution of Metapopulations is acollection of specially commissioned articles that looks at fragmented habitats, bringing together recent theoretical advances and empirical studies applying the metapopulation approach. Several chapters closely integrate ecology with genetics and evolutionary biology, and others illustrate.

In r/K selection theory, selective pressures are hypothesised to drive evolution in one of two generalized directions: r- or K-selection.
These terms, r and K, are drawn from standard ecological algebra as illustrated in the simplified Verhulst model of population dynamics: = (−) where N is the population, r is the maximum growth rate, K is the carrying capacity of the local environment. Get this from a library.
Evolutionary ecology of plant reproductive strategies. [Thomas Johannes de Jong; Petrus Gerardus Leonardus Klinkhamer] -- "Evolutionary biologists have produced a solid body of evidence to explain patterns of diversification, both within and among species.
Recent textbooks are weighted towards studies of animals, which. Plant ecology is a subdiscipline of ecology which studies the distribution and abundance of plants, the effects of environmental factors upon the abundance of plants, and the interactions among and between plants and other organisms.
Examples of these are the distribution of temperate deciduous forests in North America, the effects of drought or flooding upon plant survival, and. This chapter discusses plant agriculture with respect to ecology and evolution, and provides an opportunity to know more about ecological interactions and evolutionary adaptations using row crop agriculture as the hook.
It attempts to lessen the information gap that exists between farmers and citizens in the industrialized world. The chapter provides information on the: evolution of. The different modes of asexual plant reproduction are reviewed in the context of the evolutionary ecology (evo-eco) of retaining old (and colonizing new) habitats and exploring new ones.
This book is divided into 13 chapters. The first 2 chapters introduce the basic principles of pollination ecology in the Asteraceae family.
A whole chapter is devoted to the insects associated with the family, recognizing the role of bees and butterflies as obligatory pollinators. The specializations for pollination and the consequent modifications are described in a series of Cited by: Symposium on Ecology and Evolution of Plant Reproduction.
The two-day symposium (April 24 ) at UFMS campus in Campo Grande will be limited to attendees. Registration will be accepted up to this limit, according to the order of registration dates. Along the meeting, we will have ten plenary talks that will be presented by the international speakers. Description: Plant Ecology and Evolution (a continuation of Belgian Journal of Botany, incorporating Systematics and Geography of Plants) is an international journal devoted to ecology, phylogenetics and systematics of all ‘plant’ groups in the traditional sense (including algae, cyanobacteria, fungi, myxomycetes), also covering related fields such as comparative.
The Ecology and Evolution of Flowers uses this approach to expose new insights into the functional basis of floral diversity, and presents the very latest theoretical and empirical research on floral evolution. Floral biology is a dynamic and growing area and this book, written by the leading internationally recognized researchers in this field.

The contributors discuss conceptual issues, showing the importance of sex allocation, sexual selection and inclusive fitness, and the dimensions of paternity and maternity in plants.Pollination ecology encompasses lines of inquiry at many different scales, from studies focused on the effectiveness of a particular pollinator of a single plant species, to those addressing the properties of interactions within entire communities of floral visitors and plants, to those dealing with regional and even global, biogeographic patterns.
