That is, how does biological evolution affect the complexity of organisms? (Or assemblages of organisms, like ecologies?) Obviously, this is difficult to study well without a widely agreed-upon and biologically-appropriate complexity measure...

How different is "the evolution of complexity" from, e.g., "the evolution of size"? (Bonner, for one, suggests they are linked.)
