Abstract
The paper describes the logic that underpins a program designed to characterize the limits of applicability of extrapolation from laboratory data to the field. The interactive, iterative process couples concepts of monitoring and research so that the research question and method are linked to spatial and temporal scales of ecological variability. Without such considerations, important ecological relationships remain unspecified, thus precluding meaningful approaches to management of such complex but valuable ecosystems.
