  • A pioneering work, Species Diversity in Ecological Communities looks at biodiversity in its broadest geographical and historical contexts For many decades, ecologists have studied only small areas over short time spans in the belief that diversity is regulated by local ecological interactions However, to understand fully how communities come to have the diversity they doA pioneering work, Species Diversity in Ecological Communities looks at biodiversity in its broadest geographical and historical contexts For many decades, ecologists have studied only small areas over short time spans in the belief that diversity is regulated by local ecological interactions However, to understand fully how communities come to have the diversity they do, and to properly address urgent conservation problems, scientists must consider global patterns of species richness and the historical events that shape both regional and local communities.The authors use new theoretical developments, analyses, and case studies to explore the large scale mechanisms that generate and maintain diversity Case studies of various regions and organisms consider how local and regional processes interact to determine patterns of species richness The contributors emphasize the fact that ecological processes acting quickly on a local scale do not erase the effects of regional and historical events that occur slowly and less frequently.This book compels scientists to rethink the foundations of community ecology and sets the stage for further research using comparative, experimental, geographical, and historical data.
