I am by nature a lateral thinker and an imperialist. I’ll admit it. That is to say that if something is working at one level or one area, I like to say, “Well, maybe it will work at a broader area or across a larger span of time or biological organization.” So (I was) encouraged by that success, it’s true, and it was very successful. It really had an impact on ecology, and also on the study of biodiversity, and ultimately on conservation biology, because obviously, the processes of immigration of new species and extinction of resident species is fundamental in understanding the preservation of biodiversity in reserves and in the world generally.
