Abstract

We suggest the application of systematic reviews and meta-analysis to access biological resource selection and use patterns from a regional or global point of view. In this opinion paper, we discuss the importance of this approach to help advancing the comprehension of socio-ecological systems at broad temporal and spatial scales.
