Abstract

The term "biosphere" is elucidated in the light of the Earth's geological history, and the basic requirements for active life processes such as temperature and water as well as the factors involved in interspecific competition such as growth, light, and root systems are discussed, as are all their various interrelationships. The chapters on succession theory, the idea of climax, the law of relative constancy of location, and ecosystem metabolism in moist and arid environments provide the background information necessary for full understanding of the subsequent volumes.
