About this book

Scaling-up involves a group of techniques currently used mainly in studies of global environmental change, to link information between levels, or scales, within complex biological and physical systems. This has involved research at many levels of organisation within each system. The need to link and integrate information between scales underlines the scientific approaches described in this book. The theory, practice and challenges of scaling are discussed using examples from current research.
