About this book

Highlights the important insights to be gained when scientists expand the temporal and spatial scope of their research to look at the ways energy, organisms, nutrients, and pollutants flow not just at the local level, but across whole landscapes - between and among a wide variety of food webs. Paying special attention to the fertile boundaries between terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems, the book not only shows what this new methodology means for ecology, conservation, and agriculture but also serves as a fitting tribute to Gary Polis and his major contributions to the field.
