About this book

Macroecology is the study of large-scale community structure and the influence this has on small-scale process. In recent years there has been a definite trend towards the large-scale approach, and this work is therefore timely and relevant. It reflects the trend towards large scale research in ecology.

...Gaston and Blackburn's book is an important step along this path - an authoritative characterization of the status of this research programme in ecology, a thorough pattern-by-pattern analysis and a provocative statement on what macroecology is and what we should expect from it. Nature
