Produced in 1976 by the Institute of Biology as part of its Studies in Biology series, this booklet gives an introduction to the ecology of competition and predation. Both processes are important in affecting the size, stability and distribution of populations. On a different time scale, they result in the appearance of many evolutionary adaptations.

The booklet contains sections which examine topics including:
* The nature of competition
* Competition within a species
* Competition between species
* Predator-prey interactions
* The components of predation
* Theories of predator-prey interactions
* The role of predators in natural ecosystems
