Event Details

Arthur M. Shapiro, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, Department of Evolution and Ecology, College of Biological Sciences, UC Davis

Ecological communities as we know them are similar to freeze-frames from a long movie. Associations among species are very dynamic on millennial scales, as demonstrated by the evidence since deglaciation 15,000 years ago. Coevolution of species occurs locally in geographic mosaics and can be extremely dynamic as well. Frederic Clements, the father of American community ecology, had a holistic vision. He saw communities as supe-rorganisms. He was wrong.
