Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses how variability, through both time and space, will influence the predictions of species' interactions within the niche framework. In each case, it considers how the particular complexity influences the shape of the zero net growth isoclines, the impact vectors, or both, and thus how it alters the outcomes of interspecific interactions.

Keywords: niche framework; niche concept; zero net growth; population dynamics; equilibrium; species interactions; vectors

Chapter.  3955 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Animal Pathology and Diseases
