Summary: Jeffry Mitton1
asserted that the elaboration of community
and ecosystem genetics could "herald a new era in evolu-
tionary biology" and that "if this comes about, evolution-
ary biology and ecology will be more tightly linked than
ever before." Although great strides have been made in
understanding the ecology and evolution of two-species
interactions since Ehrlich and Raven2
, only recently
have scientists begun to consider evolution in a broader
community322
and ecosystem2332
context. Furthermore,

community organization and ecosystem dynamics3840
.
A major deterrent to advancing community and
ecosystem genetics is the overwhelming number of spe-
