BeschreibungSynthesizing theoretical and empirical analyses of the processes that help shape these unique ecosystems, "Tropical Rainforests" looks at the effects of evolutionary histories, past climate change, and ecological dynamics on the origin and maintenance of tropical rainforest communities. Featuring recent advances in paleoecology, climatology, geology, molecular systematics, biogeography, and community ecology, the volume also offers insights from those fields into how rainforests will endure the impact of anthropogenic change. With more than sixty contributors, "Tropical Rainforests" will be of great interest to students and professionals in tropical ecology and conservation.
