For all interested:
It would appear that such a text covering all aspects of Plant-Animal 
interactions doesn't really exist. Here are the suggestions that I have 
received thus far. Of all of them, the edited volume by Spencer seems 
the most appropriate but the plant group here at Wake hasn't decided one 
way or the other. 

And thanks to all who sent suggestions!
