Reply to Nick:
Thanks Nick, I think you’re absolutely right to say that Rackham’s article reminds us of the fallability of lots of ecology, particularly when using older sources.
The only thing I might add to what you say is that I think it is possible to differentiate een the difficulties inherent in any academic approach to understanding a broad problem, and the specific flaws Rackham notes. The difficulties of generalizing in ecological terms about the Mediterranean, as you describe, are still there even if all of Rackham’s advice is followed.
