    The study of how animals function with emphasis on the integration of physiological processes at the cellular, organ, and whole organism levels in ecological and evolutionary contexts. Comparisons among species and higher taxa are used to illustrate general physiological principles and . The reciprocal infusion of physiological appraoches into evolutionary biology and systematics can likewise have great value and is a future goal. Discover the world's research 17+ million members.

    ecosystems. In Evolutionary and Physiological Ecology (EPE) we study how evolution by natural selection and ecological processes shape the living world at levels from the individual to the ecosystem. Course Aims • To illustrate how organisms relate to and . Introduction to Ecology I. This Introductory Ecology Module explains the hierarchical structure of ecology-species, populations, communities, and ecosystems. Each lecture will focus on a key ecological principle then provide applied examples to further demonstrate the concept. Author(s): Dr. James Danoff-Burg.

Physiological ecology: an evolutionary approach to resource use. [Colin R Townsend; Peter Calow;] -- This book crosses normal disciplinary boundaries in a study of the adaptational aspects of resource acquisition and its subsequent partitioning between metabolism, defence, growth, storage and.

Physiological ecology (plant) The branch of plant science that seeks physiological (mechanistic) explanations for ecological observations. Emphasis is placed on understanding how plants cope with environmental variation at the physiological level, and on the influence of resource limitations on growth, metabolism, and reproduction of individuals within and among plant populations, along.

This book brings together details on benthic marine algae, seagrasses, salt marsh, mangrove, and dune plant communities throughout Latin America. Researchers and graduate students in plant ecology, marine biology, and environmental management will benefit from the valuable information in this book.

Evolutionary physiology is the study of physiological evolution, which is to say, the manner in which the functional characteristics of individuals in a population of organisms have responded to selection across multiple generations during the history of the population.

This book explores this great diversity in 15 chapters, covering the following aspects: Infrageneric classification and palaeontological records - Functional response of oaks to environmental contrains, such as summer drought or winter cold, with special reference to water transport, gas exchange and photoprotective mechanisms.

In the last two decades intensive work in the tropics, especially in the New World, has shown the great ecological diversity existing among bats, which in turn permits us to place temperate species in their appropriate ecological and evolutionary perspective and to examine some of the physiological and ecological alternatives available to bats Cited by: Parasitoids lay their eggs on or in the bodies of other species of insect, and the parasitoid larvae develop by feeding on the host, causing its eventual death.

Known for a long time to applied biologists for their importance in regulating the population densities of economic pests, parasitoids have recently proven to be valuable tools in testing many aspects of evolutionary theory.

Written by well-known ecologist Eric R. Pianka, a student of the late Robert H. MacArthur, this timeless treatment of evolutionary ecology, first published inwill endure for many decades to come.This book provides a modern, synthetic overview of interactions between insects and their environments from a physiological perspective that integrates information across a range of approaches and scales.

It shows that evolved physiological responses at the individual level are translated into coherent physiological and ecological patterns at larger, even global scales. Simon Pierce is a researcher and lecturer at the University of Milan, Italy, and at the time of writing taught plant physiological ecology at the University of Insubria, Varese, Italy.

His research encompasses plant community ecology and ecophysiology, and the reproductive biology, cultivation and conservation of terrestrial orchids.
