Regional Responses to Global Change
C. S. Holling , Editor-in-Chief
Department of Zoology, University of Florida
This second issue of Conservation Ecology begins a Special Focus on global climate change. This Special Focus initiates a series of occasional experiments to explore the interactive potential of an electronic journal. The overall focus of these experiments is the present and emerging class of global issues that present novel challenges to the integrity of ecosystems and regional economies. The consequences of biodiversity loss, emergence of novel diseases, and interhemispheric disruption of animal migration are examples. Global climate change, the most obvious current issue, is emphasized in this Special Focus. Four papers launch this experiment, two to be published in this issue of Conservation Ecology and two to be published in the future. Each paper opens a key avenue of understanding and uncertainty. They are intended to initiate a process that will draw upon the knowledge and experience of the

Using Ants as bioindicators: Multiscale Issues in Ant Community Ecology
Alan N. Andersen Cooperative Research Centre for the Sustainable Development of Tropical Savannas, Division of Wildlife and Ecology, CSIRO Tropical Ecosystems Research Centre
KEY WORDS: ants; biodiversity surrogacy; bioindicators; community; diversity patterns; functional groups; multiscale; spatial scale.
Ecologists are increasingly appreciating that ecological patterns and processes are scale-dependent, with observations at one scale often not applying to other scales (Wiens 1989 a , Levin 1992, Schneider 1994). In particular, findings from studies conducted at small spatial scales cannot necessarily be extrapolated to larger scales (Rastetter et al. 1992). This poses a considerable challenge for conservation biology, given that most ecological research involves detailed studies inside small plots (Brown 1995). It indicates a general lack of congruence between traditional scales of research (plots), on one hand, and appropriate scales of land management (landscapes) on the other. For example, fire is an important land management tool throughout the world, but most fire research is conducted inside small plots, where neither fire behavior nor ecological responses are the same as in whole landscapes (Andersen et al.

Summary Executive Summary:
The Southern Cone Regional Consultation
E-mail :

Chilean Politic Ecology Institute
The Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 set the stage for a new global alliance toward sustainable development. Breakthrough international agreements and declarations were negotiated and approved, including Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on the Environment and Development, the Convention on Climate Change, the Convention on Biodiversity, the Declaration of Forest Principles, and the Convention to Combat Desertification. Initial success notwithstanding, a number of goals enunciated at the Earth Summit remain unfulfilled. Evidently, increased international cooperation on global issues is imperative, particularly in bridging the gap between developed and underdeveloped countries. At both the national and international levels, management and protection systems must be empowered to develop the social, political and financial means to achieve sustainability. Increased communication among the various sectors of civil society is also necessary to successfully negotiate with governments and contribute in the process of decision-making. The following is an excerpt from a preparatory evaluation session of the Rio + 5 regional consultation meeting comprising the five member countries of the Southern Cone Common Market (MERCOSUR), which took place on January 20-21, 1997, in Santiago, Chile. The most important outcomes of this meeting are the Letter of Santiago and the recommendations of representatives in attendance.

All papers published in Landscape Ecology from its origin in 1987 through 1997 are now available for free downloading as PDF files. This includes all 156 articles published prior to the journal being acquired by Kluwer Academic Publishers (KAP). The journal Landscape Ecology was established in 1987, marking the beginning of new growth and synergy within the field. The journal particularly linked the emerging North American strain of landscape ecology with the more established European traditions. The early years of the journal contained many key papers that have helped form the development of landscape ecology in many sub-areas. To make these key papers more available, the current publisher, Kluwer Academic Publishers, (KAP) has funded a project to electronically scan these early papers, convert them to digital form, and create a web site for their viewing and downloading, free of any charge. The goal is particularly to increase availability for students and as a service to the International Society for Landscape Ecology. The site can be accessed directly, through links with the Landscape Ecology journal homepage at KAP , through the Society web sites, or directly where hosted in my lab, all listed below. Issues since 1997 are available at the regular journal web page.

    Research to date in this area has tended to focus on recreational outdoor spaces with subjects who have chosen to be in that environment. These subjects are therefore more forgiving of climatic conditions and will tolerate levels of environmental parameter far outside those associated with indoor thermal comfort . However, there has been little work done on subjects whose use of outdoor space may not be due to personal choice, e.g. builders, market traders, police personnel, etc. It should also be noted that use of outdoor urban spaces may not be governed by climatic conditions alone; social, cultural and aesthetic issues are likely to be important.
    The aim of Work Package 4 is to investigate outdoor comfort issues in a series of urban outdoor spaces. Both environmental and social issues will be considered. The collected data will be used to develop design guidance for use by planners and other stakeholders that facilitates optimum comfort outdoors.

    How should the Bay Area grow?
    The Bay Area has long struggled with the question of how to grow as a region. The concept of local land use authority is politically unassailable, and yet most locally elected politicians acknowledge that their jurisdictions are experiencing problems-poor air quality, unaffordable housing, traffic congestion, insufficient transit service-that would best be dealt with through regional collaboration instead of independent decisionmaking. Urban Ecology's involvement in neighborhood and city-scale policy debates all around the Bay Area naturally lends itself to our participation and leadership within efforts aimed at changing regional growth patterns.
    There are several regional initiatives now underway in the Bay Area: Transportation and Land Use Coalition
    As of 2002, TALC has grown to more than 80 organizations, and is nationally recognized as one of the most effective regional coalitions currently in operation. The Coalition's combination of grassroots activism and strong policy advocacy has transformed decision-making at the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. Urban Ecology has worked with the rest of the TALC leadership, including the Surface Transportation Policy Project, the Urban Habitat Program, Greenbelt Alliance, Latino Issues Forum, and other organizations to build TALC into a transparent, effective, and truly regional coalition.

    Ron Langley, Ecology Public Information, (206) 649-7009 Ecology Issues Second Penalty To Seafood Company Bellevue, WA The Washington State Department of Ecology has penalized Crystal Ocean Seafood, Inc., $12,000 for multiple violations of its wastewater discharge permit. This is the second time in the past 18 months that Ecology has penalized the company for waste disposal practices that threaten water quality. The company's plant is located in Burlington, in Skagit County. "Crystal Ocean Seafood is having a hard time properly managing the waste from its fish processing business," said Kevin Fitzpatrick, who manages water quality industrial permits at Ecology's regional office in Bellevue. "They've improved their disposal method in the past year and a half, but they still aren't doing it right." The company currently faces a penalty for discharging more pollutants than allowed under its water quality permit on 36 different occasions since last May. In some cases, the volume and concentration of fish matter trucked to the City of Bellingham wastewater treatment plant were double or triple the permitted amount, pushing the treatment plant to its design limits. So far, treatment plant staff have been able to compensate for the problem, thus avoiding any damage to the environment.

    Ecology Issues Some Of Many Required Permits For Crown Jewel
    Yakima, WA - The Department of Ecology has approved several permits and one draft permit for Battle Mountain Gold Company's proposed Crown Jewel Mine in northeast Okanogan County. These are the first of many permits for the project that require decisions from Ecology. Friday, Ecology approved five dam safety construction permits for impounding structures that hold water, and two construction storm water permits to protect water quality. In addition, a draft permit was released for review, addressing the protection of air quality during construction and operation of the mine. The dam safety construction permits are required in order to construct water and mine tailings holding structures at the site. "Dam safety permits are required any time a controlling structure is built for storing 10 or more acre-feet of water, waste or mine tailings," explained Jerald LaVassar, environmental engineer. "The plans and specifications were prepared by a qualified professional engineer and were reviewed and approved by Ecology engineers in order to protect both people and property."

    Human ecology stresses the application of ecological principles to the solution of human population and pollution problems. Human ecology is a dynamic field that is becoming much more global in its concerns and investigations. It has expanded from human impact on local and regional issues such as water pollution, solid waste management, and urbanization to such problems as global climate change, loss of stratospheric ozone, ocean pollution, famine, and loss of tropical rain forest. In this course we will examine the basic principles that form the foundation for understanding human ecology. We will then analyze the interaction of humans with natural resources and the resulting effect on environmental quality.
