Publication review

Centre researcher Jon Norberg, who in 2008 wrote the book Complexity theory for a sustainable future, presents issues regarding biodiversity from a trait-based perspective in relation to the response capacity of biota to environmental changes, the role of diversity for creating regime shifts as well as the spatial structures of community dynamics.

The Princeton Guide to Ecology is a one-volume reference to the field's major subjects and key concepts.

It has contributions from an international team of leading ecologists and provides articles on the most important topics within seven major areas: autecology, population ecology, communities and ecosystems, landscapes and the biosphere, conservation biology, ecosystem services, and biosphere management.
