title for learn-about section of A SNAIL'S ODYSSEY
  Population & community ecology

  This part of population & community ecology was intended to deal with intraspecific competition, while topics of MUSSEL-BED DIVERSITY, COMMUNITY SUCCESSION, INTERSPECIFIC COMPETITION, and EXTENT OF GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION are considered in other sections.
