Output of a Symposium on the Ecological Consequences of Environmental Heterogeneity, held in 1999. It includes discussion of the effects of spatial and temporal heterogeneity on individuals, populations, communities and biodiversity, and of the management and conservation implications of environmental heterogeneity.
