The most recent volume of this series, Advances in Ecological Research, demonstrates a captivating knowledge of recent advances in the analysis of food webs. A food web describes the network of predator-prey interactions within a community. The simplest description of a food web specifies only who eats whom (a connectance web), with no indication of how much or how often. Chapters in this book begin with a discussion of the most detailed connectance webs ever compiled, and advance to incorporate information on the body size and numerical abundance of the species. The results yield new ways of describing food webs and powerful new models for estimating patterns of energy flow in ecosystems.
Websites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+ have enabled users to create virtual communities for social networking and communities of practice. Because of the ever-evolving environment in social networking, there has been much opportunity for new areas of research. Research in virtual communities and social networking has taken…
