The application of the catena concept in mapping, if substantiated with the successional trend in vegetation, will give a composite picture of interrelated land forms, soil types and plant communities. 'The generalized world soil maps that have appeared have made little contribution to realistic thinking about tropical soils' (Dakshini, op. ). J. C. l. Dooge (in FAO, 1973) has reviewed the biological significance of the hydrological cycle in problems involving the biosphere. 'Water, whether in the form of surface storage, soil moisture or channel storage supports a variety of living organisms.
It seems that total production may be 100-400 g/m 2 for arid, 2501000 g/m 2 for semi-arid communities. 'These data, as well as some which directly relate productivity to precipitation, suggest that a fair proportion of variation in productivity (Y) in arid ecosystems could be accounted for by a linear regression on precipitation: Y = b(P - a) (Y = 0 if P < a) where a may be interpreted as the total of "ineffective precipitation" or water losses (evaporation and runoff) and b as the average water use efficiency of the community.
Discussion is currently devoted to the relation between diversity and stability in ecological systems. For example, at a symposium on the subject held at Brookhaven in 1969, it appeared to be concluded that each taxon and geographic region should be viewed individually, and generalization should be avoided. However, in his study of stability and complexity in model ecosystems, May (1973, reviewed by D. Simberloff, Science 181: 1157/8, 1973) has attempted just such generalizations: 'Natural stability of a system implies that displacement of an equilibrium system (equilibrium meaning that population sizes are either constant or undergoing fixed oscillations) produces another equilibrium system, the parameters of which are determined only by the degree and the direction of the displacement.
