Description:

Pioneered in the late 1980s, the concept of macroecologya framework for studying ecological communities with a focus on patterns and processesrevolutionized the field. Although this approach has been applied mainly to terrestrial ecosystems, there is increasing interest in quantifying macroecological patterns in the sea and understanding the processes that generate them. Taking stock of the current work in the field and advocating a research agenda for the decades ahead,Marine Macroecologydraws together insights and approaches from a diverse group of scientists to show how marine ecology can benefit from the adoption of macroecological approaches. Divided into three parts,Marine…
