Abstract(1) This thesis presents three papers on community ecology. Preceding these, in the first chapter, is a review of current ecology.... The subsequent chapters consider (a) whether communities have properties (in Chapter II), (b) structure and diversity and its causes (in Chapter III) and (c) community stability (in Chapter IV).
