The Patterns and Causes of Elevational Diversity Gradients

Understanding how and why diversity varies systematically with elevation has been a focus of research in spatial ecology since the days of the earliest naturalists. Indeed, over the past 25 years, Ecography has served as a key outlet for many of the studies examining the underlying causes of elevational diversity gradients. This Virtual Issue highlights some of the key papers that have had (or may have) lasting impressions on the field.
