BooknewsCollects 22 contributions from the April 1996 conference at Cambridge University. Representative topics include seeds and fruit of tropical rainforest plants, differential effects of small- scale fishing on predatory and prey fishes on Fijian reefs, limits to exploitation of Serengeti wildebeests and implications for its management, effects of habitat fragmentation on plant-pollinator interactions, evolution and diversity in Amazonian floodplain communities, and niche specificity among tropical trees. Many papers argue for thinking on a timescale of decades to centuries and evaluating species diversity and community change at different scales. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
