Biodiversity is dynamic not only in space but also with time. To fully understand large-scale biodiversity patterns and their mechanisms behind, it is essential to investigate not only contemporary macroecological patterns but also paleobiological patterns in fossil records. Tropical Asia is famous for their outstanding biodiversity both in marine and terrestrial habitats, and thus is an ideal region to study macro and paleoecology. However, regional biodiversity patterns such as latitudinal diversity gradient in the western Pacific region is not well understood. Here in this symposium, we showcase recent progress in regional–global scale paleoecology and macroecology in various time scales from the Anthropocene to hundreds of million years ago, with special emphasis on the tropical Asia, to discuss future direction of paleo-macro-ecological research in this region. Multidisciplinary approaches are particularly welcomed.
