Genetics of Community Ecology Interactions between populations, due to genotypic (gene allele combinations) and phenotypic (trait expression) characteristics is key

Community ecology examines patterns such as variation in species richness , equitability, productivity and food web structure; it also examines processes such as predator-prey population dynamics , succession , and community assembly. Patterns and processes in turn can be considered in terms of space and time, at different scales .
