This book introduces the natural history and ecology of the animal communities in plant-held water bodies, such as tree-holes and pitcher plants. In this book, Professor Kitching introduces us to these fascinating miniature worlds and demonstrates how they can be used to tackle some of the major questions in community ecology, including food web formation. It is a unique introduction to the field naturalist, and a stimulating source treatment for graduate students and professionals working in the fields of tropical and other forest ecology, as well as entomology.

Review of the hardback: '… well organised and easy to follow, and includes some delightful accounts of the author's field experiences … a stimulating companion for naturalists and entomologists in the study of compact communities in the field, as well as for serious students of phytotelmatology.' Jiro Kikkawa, Trends in Ecology and Evolution
