Formatted Abstract/Summary
There are millions of different species on Earth, each responding uniquely to the environment and to other species, and each with a distinct geographical distribution. This results in enormously complex spatial patterns in nature, from latitudinal gradients in global species richness to the patchy distribution of plants across a meadow. Documenting and understanding these patterns has occupied biogeographers and macroecologists for decades (Chapter 4 ). There has been considerable progress toward a general understanding (Gaston & Blackburn, 2000 ; Lomolino et al. , 2004 ), but how should we go about trying to conserve biodiversity in the face of such complex spatial patterns?
