RAMIREZ, Alonso  and  GUTIERREZ-FONSECA, Pablo E.. Ecological ensembles and assemblages - a reply to Monge-Nájera. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2016, vol.64, n.2, pp.817-819. ISSN 0034-7744.

Critical evaluation of terminology use in ecology is important to avoid using jargon that helps little to facilitate communication. Here we reply to Monge-Najera’s comment on the use of the terms ensemble and assemblage, we argue for the use of the words ensamble and ensamblaje in Spanish. In addition, both terms have a proper place in ecology and we provide a case for their use in proper ecological context. Rev. Biol. Trop. 64 (2): 817-819. Epub 2016 June 01.

Keywords : assemblage; ensemble; terms.
