How does climate affect biodiversity? Why are various plants and animals distributed across the globe as they are? Why do communities have particular lineage compositions? These and other basic questions about modern living communities can be addressed by comparing them with those in deep time. I examine modern insect communities in comparison with the diverse and well preserved fifty million year old insect communities of the early Eocene Okanagan  Highlands series of fossil sites in British Columbia, Canada and northern Washington, USA.
