In "Big Ecology," David C. Coleman documents his historically
fruitful ecological collaborations in the early years of studying
large ecosystems in the United States. As Coleman explains, the
concept of the ecosystem a local biological community and its
interactions with its environment has given rise to many
institutions and research programs, like the National Science
Foundation s program for Long Term Ecological Research. Coleman s
insider account of this important and fascinating trend toward big
science takes us from the paradigm of collaborative
interdisciplinary research, starting with the International
Geophysical Year (IGY) of 1957, through the International
Biological Program (IBP) of the late 1960s and early 1970s, to the
Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) programs of the 1980s."
