The Theory of Ecological Communities (Mpb-57)

The Theory of Ecological Communities (Mpb-57) - Mark Vellend A well structured and clear attempt to pull generalizations out of the wildly complex field of community ecology. How useful at what level? I would say an excellent teaching tool for high school and above with scaffolding, with potential to influence research/analysis methodology at the professional level --though there are some concerns with nomenclature/terminology, as well as function/utility in models/stats, Vellend's 4 high level processes in community ecology do seem to hold up under empirical examination.
