p. 794. Wildlife and microbeslocked

  • Peter A. Furley


‘Wildlife and microbes’ looks at energy pathways through the savanna system and the nature of the wildlife characterizing each of the major savanna landscapes, including the woody savannas of the Brazilian cerrado, the East African grasslands, dry and wetland savannas, and the Australian savanna woodlands. This brings into consideration food chains and food webs, as well as aspects of animal ecology that determine the number and character of living organisms. The two main aspects of wildlife to consider are the individual populations of animal species and the way they integrate into communities. Life in all savannas depends upon the complexity of biological interactions between the smallest and the largest organisms.
