Explores the relationships between habitat selection and optimal foraging theory; density-dependent habitat selection in a single species; competition and habitat selection; and population consequences of habitat selection. Problems of building a theory of community ecology are addressed, arguing that habitat selection theory-with its suite of qualitative predictions-presents a middle path between unrealistically precise prediction and valueless generalisations. -P.J.Jarvis
