    Description

    Scale is a fundamental concept in ecology and all sciences (Levin 1992, Wu and Loucks 1995, Barenblatt 1996), which has received increasing attention in recent years. The previous chapters have demonstrated an immerse diversity of scaling issues present in different areas of ecology, covering species distribution, population dynamics, ecosystem processes, and environmental assessment. Scale issues occur in every facet of ecological research, including study design, data collection, experimentation, statistical analysis, and modeling. The scales of observations and outcomes in the case studies range from plots, ecosystems, landscapes, to regions.
