The object of ecology shifted across time from individual organisms since its first definition (Haeckel, 1866) to biotic communities (biocoenoses)--Andrewartha and Birch, 1954, then to ecosystems (Tansley, 1935; Pickett and Grove, 2009), and finally to complexes of ecosystems or landscapes (Vadineanu, 2004).
