Biodiversity Dynamics: Turnover of Populations, Taxa, and Communities
How will patterns of human interaction with the earth's ecosystem impact biodiversity loss over the long term - not in the next ten or even fifty years, but on the vast temporal scale dealt with by earth scientists? The contributors to Biodiversity Dynamics bring together the cutting-edge findings of a number of different fields that have traditionally had little crossover: data from population biology, community ecology, comparative biology, and paleontology are all presented. Where paleontologists and ecologists have long had divergent perspectives, Biodiversity Dynamics seeks a middle ground, finding ways for both scientific communities to work together to comprehend the great biodiversity of the earth and how to preserve it for future generations.
