The interests of ecologists and evolutionary biologists are very diverse, as are the organisms and systems that they study. Given the complexity of the world around them and of the problems that they are tackling, it is no surprise that ecologists and evolutionary biologists sometimes need to combine effects that do not conveniently fall under the range of common measures obtained from standard experimental studies or that are commonly employed in ecological and evolutionary meta-analyses. This chapter focuses on some of the other effect size metrics that might be of interest to a meta-analyst in these fields. Some of these are quite standard in the particular discipline in which they arise, but may be nonstandard to others. The chapter discusses a range of approaches to combining these different measures of effects, in the hope that this will broaden the options available for meta-analysis and motivate prospective analysts to search their own literature for relevant ideas and approaches.
