The Ecology and Evolution of Ant-Plant Interactions

Victor Rico-Gray

1stPublisher: University of Chicago PressFormat: Paperback

Ants are probably the most dominant insect group on Earth, representing ten to fifteen percent of animal biomass in terrestrial ecosystems. Flowering plants, meanwhile, owe their evolutionary success to an array of interspecific interactions - such as pollination, seed dispersal, and herbivory - that have helped to shape their great diversity. “The Ecology and Evolution of Ant-Plant Interactions” brings together findings from the scientific literature on the coevolution of ants and plants to provide a better understanding of the unparalleled success of these two remarkable groups, of interspecific interactions in general, and, ultimately, of terrestrial biological communities. “The Ecology and Evolution of Ant-Plant Interactions” synthesizes the dynamics of ant-plant interactions, including the sources of variation in their outcomes. Victor Rico-Gray and Paulo S. Oliveira capture both the emerging appreciation of the importance of these interactions within ecosystems and the developing approaches that place studies of these interactions into a broader ecological and evolutionary context.A collaboration by two internationally renowned scientists, “The Ecology and Evolution of Ant-Plant Interactions” will become a standard reference for understanding the complex interactions between these two taxa.
