Multitrophic interactions are now recognized as being very important in understanding the complexity of the natural world. This book takes a multidisciplinary approach to complex interactions across many trophic levels, and includes authors from disciplines as diverse as mycology, entomology, hematology, and population and theoretical ecology. Direct and indirect interactions between organisms from different trophic levels are emphasized.
