Food Webs and Biodiversity: Foundations, Models, Data

Food Webs and Biodiversity: Foundations, Models, Data by Axel G. Rossberg
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0470973552 | 396 pages | PDF | 8 MB

Food webs have now been addressed in empirical and theoretical research for more than 50 years. Yet, even elementary foundational issues are still hotly debated. One difficulty is that a multitude of processes need to be taken into account to understand the patterns found empirically in the structure of food webs and communities.

Resetting the Kitchen Table: Food Security, Culture, Health And Resilience in Coastal Communities by Christopher C. Parrish
English | 2 Jun. 2006 | ISBN: 1600212360 | 269 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

This book examines the history of health, diet, and nutrition with a particular focus on the issue of decreasing food security in places where once-stable food webs have suffered radical shock, as have the cultures of human communities, which have always been interdependent with now-endangered food sources.

Trophic Organization in Coastal Systems (Marine Science)

Trophic Organization in Coastal Systems (Marine Science)
Publisher: CRC Press | ISBN: 0849311101 | edition 2002 | PDF | 418 pages | 18,2 mb

Derived from an unprecedented research effort covering over 70 field years of field data in a series of studies, Trophic Organization in Coastal Systems represents an alternative approach to coastal research that has been successfully applied to coastal resource management issues. This unique book is based upon a sequence of long-term, interdisciplinary studies of a series of coastal regions in the NE Gulf of Mexico that include nutrient loading, habitat definition, quantified collections of organisms from microbes to fishes, and the determination of the trophic organization that defines the processes that shape the productivity of these areas.A multidisciplinary team of marine scientists, chemists, physical oceanographers, geologists, hydrologists, engineers, experimental biologists, and taxonomists have created a singular database of changes in a series of Gulf of Mexico coastal systems. This field information, together with field and laboratory experimentation, is integrated with the scientific literature to advance our understanding of how coastal food webs work. The central focus is on the relationship of primary production in the form of species-specific phytoplankton communities with associated food webs of coastal systems and the relationship of tropho-dynamic processes to long-term changes (natural and polluted) in such areas

Animal Hunting and Feeding (Animal Behavior)

Natalie Goldstein,"Animal Hunting and Feeding"

Chelsea House Publications | May 30, 2009 | PDF | ISBN: 1604131438 | 110 pages | 8.1mb

All animals have to eat, but feeding behavior goes far beyond predators and prey. Animals have a variety of ways to find food. Some sit and wait for food to come to them. Others chase or trap their food. Other animals are scavengers and decomposers, breaking down the leftovers of other animals' meals. "Animal Hunting and Feeding" explains these various techniques as well as the importance of food chains and food webs.
