The research described in the last chapters provides a wealth of data for interpreting the response of species and community diversity to environmental heterogeneity, and for testing and comparing the various theories on dominance-diversity relationships and the various diversity measures. The following discussion is divided into three sections: First is a discussion of the diversity mosaic and how it responds to spatial and temporal habitat heterogeneity; next is a discussion of the theory supporting various dominance-diversity relationships and measures of species diversity in relationship to the Glacier community data; the final section is a discussion of the evolution and maintainence of Glacier’s terrestrial diversity.
