Ecological Networks in the Tropics

An Integrative Overview of Species Interactions from Some of the Most Species-Rich Habitats on Earth

Editors: Dáttilo, Wesley, Rico-Gray, Victor (Eds.)

  • This is a must-read for ecologists interested in species interactions in the tropics, providing approaches not found elsewhere
  • This is a very concise book in terms of selection of concepts and empirical examples on how the architecture of the biodiversity is organized in the tropics
  • Despite of high diversity of species and interactions in tropical environments, there is no equivalent book that reviews ecological networks in these environments

About this book

Based on graph theory studies this book seeks to understand how tropical species interact with each other and how these interactions are affected by perturbations in some of the most species-rich habitats on earth. Due to the great diversity of species and interactions in the tropics, this book addresses a wide range of current and future issues with empirical examples and complete revisions on different types of ecological networks: from mutualisms to antagonisms. The goal of this publication is not to be only for researchers but also for undergraduates in different areas of knowledge, and also to serve as a reference text for graduate-level courses mainly in the life sciences.

About the authors

Wesley Dáttilo received his Ph.D. from the Universidad Veracruzana (Mexico). Currently, he is Titular Researcher at the Department of Eco-Ethology at the Instituto de Ecología A.C., Mexico. The main focus of his research over the last decade has been to understand how ecological and evolutionary mechanisms shape plant-animal interaction networks at different levels. Moreover, he is seeking to understand how species interactions vary through space-time, and how they are influenced by environmental perturbations in different types of tropical environments in Brazil and Mexico. He has written and co-authored over 50 publications based on his research, many of which he has presented at national and international conferences. His teaching responsibilities have involved mostly graduate courses on ecological networks and field courses in tropical environments.

Victor Rico-Gray received his Ph.D. in 1987 from Tulane University (U.S.A.) Currently he is a full-time researcher at Instituto de Neuroetología of Universidad Veracruzana. His main research has been the interactions between plants and ants.
