Abstract

Changes in biodiversity have been linked to variations in climate and human activities [295]. These changes have implications for a wide range of socially relevant processes, including the spread of infectious disease, invasive species dynamics, and vegetation productivity [27, 70, 203, 291, 294, 376, 426]. Our understanding of biodiversity patterns and processes through space and time, scaling from genes to continents, is limited by our ability to analyze and synthesize multidimensional data effectively from sources as wide-ranging as field and laboratory experiments, satellite imagery, and simulation models.
