With case studies focusing on issues ranging from population to ecosystem processes; from biodiversity to landscape patterns; and from basic research to multidisciplinary management and policy-making, the book will appeal to both researchers and practitioners working on landscape issues. This problem is familiar to ecologists: discussed issues of spatial sampling and data analysis nearly 40 years ago; explored the transmutation of information across levels of complexity; provided new perspectives from hierarchy theory; and galvanized interest with his 1989 Robert H.
It compares current definitions and ideas concerning scale within a coherent framework, and examines two key scaling approaches: similarity-based scaling, which is rooted in the idea of similitude or self-similarity; and dynamic model-based scaling, which emphasizes processes and mechanisms.

The importance of this result is that it focuses future studies on measuring specific processes that will most increase our confidence in predictions. It will also provide a valuable resource for graduate students and professional trainees in ecology, environmental policy, resource management and global change science.
The remaining chapters of this section provide a diverse set of approaches to scale-dependent analysis and prediction.

His recent research has focused on urban landscape analysis and modeling, biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, and spatial scaling.
Scaling and uncertainty analysis in ecology: methods and applications. The unresolved issues revolve around the complex response of ecosystems to change; the insufficiency of measurements in time and space; and the diversity of approaches now being employed by geographers, geologists, atmospheric scientists, and ecologists.
