People are becoming increasingly aware that ecologists work on local patterns that are likely to represent the outcome of special and unique events incorporate variation from broad to local scales. For those interested in the discovery of detail, local patterns appear to have an infinite supply. For those interested in the existence of generalities, it is encouraging to observe that general patterns and responses can emerge from complexity on local scales. This realization, together with the need for a renewed effort for carefully planned sampling and experimentation across broad scales, suggests that there are opportunities to test some of the more interesting questions about the relative importance of processes across vast parts of the world's coast.
