Title: Space and time in ecology: Noise or fundamental driver? [chapter 2]

Author: Cushman, Samuel A.

Date: 2010

Source: In: Cushman, Samuel A.; Huettmann, Falk, eds. Spatial complexity, informatics, and wildlife conservation. New York: Springer. p. 19-41.

Publication Series: Book Chapter

Description: In this chapter I frame the central issue of the book, namely is spatial and temporal complexity in ecological systems merely noise around the predictions of non-spatial, equilibrium processes? Or, alternatively, do spatial and temporal variability in the environment and autogenic spaceĀ­time processes in populations fundamentally alter system behavior such that ideal models of nonspatial and equilibrium processes do not represent the fundamental dynamics of ecological systems?

Keywords: space, time, ecology
