Ecology (from Greek: οἶκος, "house", or "environment"; -λογία, "study of") is a branch of biology concerning interactions among organisms and their biophysical environment, which includes both biotic and abiotic components. Topics of interest include the biodiversity, distribution, biomass, and populations of organisms, as well as cooperation and competition within and between species.   Ecology and evolution of communities Item Preview remove-circle Congresses, Biotic communities -- Congresses, Ecology, Biotic communities Publisher Cambridge, Mass.: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press Borrow this book to access EPUB and PDF files.
