This chapter examines the role of invertebrates in ecosystems. It discusses significant contribution of Oxford researchers in ecology and ecological genetics such as Charles Elton, Edmund Ford, and Richard Southwood. It also highlights the Wytham Ecological Survey's studies in understanding the dynamic relations between populations of species living in an area and finding out which species tended to associate together in particular habitats. It presents a detailed case study of the winter moth found in the Wytham Woods in analysing population dynamics in woodlands.

Keywords:   invertebrates, ecology, ecological genetics, Charles Elton, Edmund Ford, Richard Southwood, Wytham Ecological Survey, winter moth, Wytham Woods
