Many biological networks have been labelled scale-free as their degree distribution can be approximately described by a powerlaw distribution. While the degree distribution does not summarize all aspects of a network it has often been suggested that its functional form contains important clues as to underlying evolutionary processes that have shaped the network. Generally determining the appropriate functional form for the degree distribution has been fitted in an ad-hoc fashion. Here we apply… CONTINUE READING
