In the last fifteen years, ecosystem ecologists have developed a theoretical approach and a set of computational methods called “ecological network analysis” (Ulanowicz, 1986; Kay et al. 1996). Ecological network analysis is based on input/output models of energy or material flows (e.g., carbon compound flows) through a trophic network (e.g., a food web describing which species eats which other species). Mathematically and conceptually, this ecological network analysis approach is strikingly… CONTINUE READING
