About this book

Ecologists increasingly find themselves called upon to address the impacts of global change on biodiversity. Yet most studies on biodiversity focus solely on intensive, experimental analyses of localized ecological communities. In this book, Maurer argues for a more pluralistic approach, showing how ecologists might enhance their ability to tackle global problems by incorporating broader spatial and temporal perspectives into their research.
