This chapter explores large-scale patterns of relative diversity across families of stoneflies. It examines three aspects of stonefly ecology including shredding, predation, and population biology with special attention to scale. The chapter highlights the existence of major structural differences in the macroecology of stoneflies in North America and the Holarctic, and proposes a research agenda in stonefly ecology emphasizing collaboration and a geographical perspective.

Keywords:   stoneflies, diversity, ecology, shredding, predation, population biology, North America, Holarctic
