Patterns of Biodiversity

Biodiversity shows many patterns in space and time. These patterns form due to climate, interactions between species, geology, local history, and many other factors. Theory can tell us what to expect, but the actual patterns of nature are what it seeks to explain. This section has four parts. This page briefly covers some techniques and factors that affect biodiversity patterns. The second part examines patterns in space, while the third covers patterns in time. The final part looks at biodiversity patterns in Canada.
