Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics, 2005, vol. 36.
Annual review of ecology, evolution, and systematics; v.36, 2005.
Ed. by Douglas J. Futuyma et al.
The 27 papers in the 2005 edition of the annual volume review recent studies on the evolution of fluctuating asymmetry, polyandry, aphid- ant interactions, and agriculture in insects; and the evolutionary ecology of gynogenesis and plant adaptation to serpentine. The contributors provide a conceptual basis for individual-based models of ecological and evolutionary processes, integrate information about structural and functional aspects of rDNA, evaluate current evidence on whether conserving biodiversity is necessary for maintaining ecosystem functioning, and summarize developments in landscape ecology. Some color plates are provided.
