"This wonderful and lively book provides a fitting forty-year retrospective on MacArthur and Wilson's seminal volume. I can easily see it on the shelf of every serious graduate student of community ecology. It has all the 'right' names in it--many of them personal friends of MacArthur and Wilson--plus a bunch of rising stars of the next generation. This book should create quite a ripple in the field."--William H. Schlesinger, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies "The chapters are all written by leaders in the field, the historical reviews are succinct and enlightening, and the perspectives are different enough to prevent repetition. Every author here whose work I know well has presented something new in the way of theoretical insight, data portraying an ecological pattern, or synthetic perspective on the field."--Henry S. Horn, Princeton University
