Nature's Matrix, Chapters 1 and 2

An excerpt from Nature's Matrix (2009) by Perfecto, Vandermeer and Wright. Chapter 2 is most relevant to the seminar, but Chapter 1 provides an overview (both are included). The authors lay out the nature of trade-offs between conservation of biodiversity, on the one hand, and food production for human welfare, on the other, from an ecological perspective grounded in metacommunity (patch dynamics) theory.
