Life History Evolution in Plants
In the last two decades, research on plant life-histories has made impressive progress. Nevertheless, an up-to-date overview, covering all the main branches of plant life-history research, has been lacking. The purpose of the present volume is to fill this gap in the current ecological literature. The ten chapters cover a wide range of topics, including genetic variation in life-history traits, modularity, resource and sex allocation, effects of pathogens and herbivores on life-history traits, evolution of dispersal, senescence, and important methods used in plant life-history research (including demographic and optimality models, and game theory). All authors are leading experts in their fields, and the book is recommended as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate levels.
