Why a symposium on scaling? Brown The Metabolic Theory of Ecology. But how much progress have we made since these papers? The last few decades have seen intense research interest, debate, and other methodological and analytical activity with scaling approaches. There has been much work done to develop general scaling theories associated with biodiversity, ecosystem pattern and process, and the ramifications of metabolism.
Much progress has been made in identifying patterns and revising and extending scaling theory in light of extensive new empirical data. The scope scaling approaches continue to expand and now encompasses a large array of biological phenomena — from the dynamics of cellular organelles to global patterns in biodiversity — and subdisciplines, including plant physiology, community ecology, and ecosystem science. Our ESA symposium brings together a collection of ecologists working at the forefront of attempts to utilize integrative and synthetic approaches to modeling ecological patterns and processes.
Research areas range from the adaptive nature of traits and biological networks to the structure and dynamics of plant and animal communities, scale dynamics of biodiversity and ecosystems to the role of body size in structuring food webs, to processes driving the flux of materials and energy at ecosystem scales.
While the range of physical scales and taxa spanned by this group is considerable, all recognize and incorporate the central roles of scaling to their research programs. Our goal is to consider the advances made in each area individually and also how the areas overlap in hopes that the insights gained from each respective scale can inform and enrich attempts at synthesis across scales.
