Biogeography and macroecology : now a significant component of physical geography

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Clearly, macroecology is taking an increasingly significant place in the research agendas of both physical geography and ecology. Underlying these trends is a burgeoning increase in the numbers of papers published that would qualify for inclusion in this review. As a consequence, the review has to be necessary selective, and papers are summarized under a series of general headings : macroecology as a subject; methods in macroecology; species range size distributions and range size variations; a metabolic theory of ecology; macroecology, human impact and biological conservation
