Ecology of Climate Change: The Importance of Biotic Interactions

Eric Post


Rising temperatures are affecting organisms in all of Earth's biomes, but the complexity of ecological responses to climate change has hampered the development of a conceptually unified treatment of them. In a remarkably comprehensive synthesis, this book presents past, ongoing, and future ecological responses to climate change in the context of two simplifying hypotheses, facilitation and interference, arguing that biotic interactions may be the primary driver of ecological responses to climate change across all levels of biological organization. The author's synthesis and analyses of ecologi ... More

Keywords: rising temperature, climate change, facilitation, interference, biotic interaction, ecology, stability theory, ecosystems, climatic variability
