Predation: Direct and Indirect Impacts on Aquatic Communities

Front Cover
University Press of New England, 1987 - Science - 386 pages
Twenty-four essays from a symposium sponsored by the Ecological Society of America, Fort Collins, CO, 1984. The focus is on a single theme: that the mere presence of a predator can influence interactions between two or more competing species in many important ways, all of which have previously been included under the nebulous term effects.
