EDITORIAL Steven N. Handel The Past e live in a fractured world. Old biotic pat- being described (Hobbs et al. 2009). These strange new communities and the remnants of the old both support our terns and relationships have changed with the Wgrowth of human activities and their conse- civilization in many ways.

It is unclear how “synthetic vegetation” performs, although Here, in North America, since the first people crossed over from Asia, plant and animal communities and ecosystem all carbon sequestration is treasured in these days. These functions now have an appreciative audience for what are processes have been modified, sometimes dramatically, for thousands of years (Krech 1999). More recently, the termed ecological services. This is now playing a major role in tying the science of ecology to economic concerns and past few hundred years have shown an escalating rate of change of our living environment (Whitney 1994).
