Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Eight papers delivered at a symposium in Bad Homburg, Germany no date given explore an emerging concept that an ecosystem can be seen as a continuing cyclical succession, the various parts of which, being in different phases of the cycle, maintain a state of balance for the system as a whole. The topics include a mathematical model demonstrating that an ecosystem is much less sensitive to external disturbance than is generally believed, and applications of the concept to Pacific forests, marine benthos, neotropical forest birds, small mammals, phytoplankton, and arid and semi-arid regions in Namibia.
