Both "new" and "traditional" aspects of community ecology are covered in the book's five sections:
*The Big Picture: Patterns, Causes, and Consequences of Biodiversity
*The Nitty-Gritty: Species Interactions in Simple Modules
*Putting the Pieces Together: Food Webs and Ecological Networks
*Spatial Ecology: Metapopulations and Metacommunities
*Species in Changing Environments: Ecology and Evolution
Applied aspects of community ecology (e.g., resource harvesting, invasive species, community restoration) are treated throughout the book as natural extensions of basic theoretical and empirical work. Theoretical concepts are developed using simple equations, and there is an emphasis on the graphical presentation of ideas. Each chapter concludes with a summary.
