Item description for Competition and Coexistence by Ulrich Sommer...
The global loss of biodiversity has led to a renewed interest in the underlying mechanisms that explain spatial differences and temporal change of diversity. This book synthesises recent advances in our understanding of interactions that enhance or diminish coexistence among competing species. It features an innovative, spatial view of competition and coexistence. The chapters are logically grouped and stitched together by the central organising principle of spatial distribution and mobility of competing species and their resources. The text also covers ecological modelling and experimental evidence in the search for general principles across ecosystems, from lake plankton and rocky shore benthos to grasslands and insects.

More About Ulrich Sommer
Winfried Lampert is Director Emeritus at Max Planck Institute for Limnology, Ploen, Germany, and is a Honorary Professor at the University of Kiel. He received the Naumann-Thienemann medal of the International Society of Limnology in 1995. Before his appointment to the Max Planck Society he worked at the universities at Freiburg, Constance and Frankfurt were he developed his experimental, evolutionary approach to plankton ecology. Ulrich Sommer is Full Professor of Biological Oceanography, Leibniz-Institute of Marine Sciences, University of Kiel, Germany. His background is originally in limnology. He has become well known for his mechanistic, experimental approach to phytoplankton community ecology. He worked at the universities of Vienna and Constance and at the Max Planck Institute at Plon, Germany, before he moved to the universities of Oldenburg and Kiel to apply a similar approach in marine systems. Ulrich Sommer has written and edited several books on plankton.
Ulrich Sommer was born in 1952 and has an academic affiliation as follows - Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences, Kiel Institute of Marine Researc.
