About this book

A book for both theoretical and applied ecologists this book synthesizes a diverse and previously scattered literature on scale in ecology. All of the contributors address the theoretical and methodological ramifications of the standardization of scale within a broad multidisciplinary context. Together, the essays present convincing evidence that the integration of scale concepts into ecological study is of imminent global concern, especially for such topics as biodiversity, ecosystem management and global warming.
