Centre researcher Jon Norberg has contributed to the new Princeton Guide to Ecology, writing the chapter Beyond Biodiversity: Other Aspects of Ecological Organization.

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.
