Islands: Biological Diversity and Ecosystem Function. Vitousek Lloyd L. Loope Henning Adsersen (Ed. Islands. o. 18 Experimental Studies on Islands. Islands can be viewed as natural experiments, and ecosystem processes thereon can be compared with those on continents or other islands having similar geology, topography, and climate. Such comparisons should do much to elucidate the relationships between biota and fluxes of materials and energy, as described in Chapter 14. Nevertheless, island-continent comparisons and natural experiments (Bowden, Chap.

Human-caused biological invasions by an alien species are a worldwide phenomenon. They are particularly significant on isolated oceanic islands and represent a serious threat to endemic biota. 16.

Oceanic islands represent a set of systems in which biological diversity varies as a consequence of remoteness or size, not environment; they are also generally simpler than continental ecosystems. Islands therefore provide an opportunity to determine the direct effects of biological diversity on ecosystem function.The volume addresses the components of biological diversity on islands and their patterns of variation; the modern threats to the maintenance of biological diversity on islands; the consequences of island biology and its modification by humanity regarding aspects of ecosystem function; the global implications of islands for conservation; and how islands can help one to understand the processes inducing changes throughout the world.
