The parallel community have focused on issues of performance and scalability
while the distributed community have been more concerned with sharing and
wide area connectivity. There is now however some evidence that the interests of
the two communities are converging. This paper examines arguments for and
against convergence (from the perspective of the distributed systems community).
In particular, the paper examines three trends towards convergence: i) the
emergence ...

Thorson had studied communities in many parts of the world and was struck by
the fact that while the same genera often occurred on the same types of bottom in
different areas, the species were different on going from the artic-boreal regions
to, say, the Pacific coast of North America. He called these communities parallel
communities. For example, the Macoma communities could be split up into four
parallel communities: the M. calcarea, M. balthica, M. nasuta-M. secta and the M.

To support massively parallel computation models, advanced communication
models, and optimization techniques, OCore introduces the notion of
communities, a meta-level architecture, and a distributed garbage collection
mechanism on top of a fundamental concurrent object-oriented layer. A
community structures a set of objects and provides an abstraction of parallelism.
Communities support data parallel computation as well as multi-access data. In
this paper we show data ...

From these examples from mixed, sandy, and muddy bottoms, we find that each
series of parallel communities everywhere shows uniform features qualitatively
as well as quantitatively, irrespective of latitude. This uniformity and parallelism of
level-bottom communities" is not at all surprising. Although rocky shores and
reefs, with their abundance of varying microlandscapes, are ideal for
development of new specialized communities, the opposite is true on the level
sea bottom. A sandy ...

It represents, for the Devonian, an estimate of the communities to be expected
from the various Old World Regions after they have been considered in as much
detail as the Eastern Americas and Malvinokaffric Realms. Watkins et al. (1973)
have discussed the differences between Petersen Animal Communities (PAC)
based on recurring combinations of species, Parallel Communities (groups of
PACs related by common ancestry of contained taxa that are characterized by
similar or ...

Here I will emphasize the comparison of communities between continents. At
these levels parallel/convergent evolution is at its most dramatic, for the former
choice extends the matching of individual species niches to include the relative
juxtaposition of these niches in the community, their number and shape, and the
latter condition assures us that the species in these communities so compared
will bear minimal taxonomic affiliation to each other and thus minimal
resemblance due to ...

One of the most persuasive illustrations of some sense of order or pattern within
community structure is the recognition of an apparent regularity in the manner in
which a particular set of resources may be 'apportioned' amongst a set of
consumers - even in widely disparate communities. There is a striking similarity of
niche-form and niche structure, of the way 'the jobs are partitioned out' in 'parallel'
communities. Thus, for example, Cody demonstrates that the division of available
