内容説明

This volume comprises the proceedings of an International Symposium convened by the British Ecological Society and the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography. The contributors identify similarities and differences between freshwater and marine ecosystems, and examine the extent to which the scale of approach influences the patterns observed and the underlying processes implied. The book's coverage ranges over the whole spectrum of aquatic systems, from small temporary pockets of water held on plant stems, to the deep oceans. The temporal scales addressed range from short-term behaviour to evolutionary biology, biogeographic patterns and palaeoecology. This book is an attempt to address interactions between pattern and process at different spatio-temporal scales in aquatic ecosystems.

目次
