Population biology of plants
Population Biology of Plants defines a science of population biology for plants and other fixed organisms. The author describes the processes that determine the number of plants (and the number of plant parts), examines the separate stages in a general model of population behavior, the ways in which individual plants interfere with each others growth and risk of death and aspects of the behavior of animals that influence or determine the size of plant populations.
