This book aimed at graduate and profesisonal ecologists:
  • Summarizes the current macroecological literature
  • Provides numerous examples of key patterns
  • Explicitly links local and regional scale processes

Issues of scale have become increasingly important to ecologists. This book addresses the structure of regional (large-scale) ecological assemblages or communities, and the influence this has at a local (small-scale) level. This macroecological perspective is essential for the broader study of ecology because the structure and function of local communities cannot be properly understood without reference to the region in which they are situated.
