Traditional plant ecology, for example, has focused inordinately on scales of 1 square meter and one growing season. However, the distribution, abundance, and processes affecting species at the community level are partly a function of the landscape in which they live. By acknowledging this interaction, a landscape study adds spatial heterogeneity to a population, community, or ecosystem study. Expanding the spatial scale can reveal how the distribution and abundance of species within a local community are influenced by the larger regional context in which it is embedded.
