Mutualistic interactions among plants and animals have played a
paramount role in shaping biodiversity. Yet the majority of studies
on mutualistic interactions have involved only a few species, as
opposed to broader mutual connections between communities of
organisms. "Mutualistic Networks" is the first book to
comprehensively explore this burgeoning field. Integrating
different approaches, from the statistical description of network
structures to the development of new analytical frameworks, Jordi
Bascompte and Pedro Jordano describe the architecture of these
mutualistic networks and show their importance for the robustness
of biodiversity and the coevolutionary process.
Making a case for why we should care about mutualisms and their
complex networks, this book offers a new perspective on the study
and synthesis of this growing area for ecologists and evolutionary
biologists. It will serve as the standard reference for all future
work on mutualistic interactions in biological communities.
