Biological diversity and Time

Dr. Anne Magurran, Professor, Gatty Marine Laboratory, University of St Andrews, Fife, Scotland, discussed Biological diversity and Time, in a joint presentation of the Adaptive Peaks and Women in Scientific and Environmental Professions Speaker Series. Dr. Magurran illustrated that species assemblages have been relatively and broadly constant over time, but that an advantage to one species alters the environment to effect the presence of others in that environment.  She also discussed the implications of such temporal turnovers.
