Ecological networks and their fragility
Darwin used the metaphor of a ‘tangled bank’ to describe the complex interactions between species. Those interactions are varied: they can be antagonistic ones involving predation, herbivory andExpand

Information Theory of Complex Networks: On Evolution and Architectural Constraints
Complex networks are characterized by highly heterogeneous distributions of links, often pervading the presence of key properties such as robustness under node removal. Several correlation measuresExpand

TLDR
The emergence of a complex language is one of the fundamental events of human evolution, and several remarkable features suggest the presence of fundamental principles of organization. Expand

A Model of Large-Scale proteome Evolution
TLDR
We present a simple model of proteome evolution that is able to reproduce many of the observed statistical regularities reported from the analysis of the yeast proteome. Expand

Topological Vulnerability of the European Power Grid under Errors and Attacks
TLDR
We present an analysis of the topological structure and static tolerance to errors and attacks of the September 2003 actualization of the Union for the Coordination of Transport of Electricity (UCTE) power grid, involving thirty-three different networks. Expand

Evolving protein interaction networks through gene duplication.
The topology of the proteome map revealed by recent large-scale hybridization methods has shown that the distribution of protein-protein interactions is highly heterogeneous, with many proteinsExpand

Two Regimes in the Frequency of Words and the Origins of Complex Lexicons: Zipf’s Law Revisited*

Habitat Fragmentation and Extinction Thresholds in Spatially Explicit Models
The incidence of habitat destruction on the survivorship of a single metapopulation is studied by means of a spatially explicit model. As the proportion of destroyed sites increases, the structuralExpand
