Testing qualitative stability

So, we have a major question in ecology; “what is the relationship between diversity/complexity and stability.” And we have data on diversity and complexity, but how can we assess the stability of a system without numbers to fill in the … Continue reading

Structure shapes interactions

Whether an ecological network is nested, compartmentalized, or asymmetric is clearly influenced by the developing coevolutionary interactions between species as the network grows. Through feedback, however, network structure determines the interactions that can and do occur as well as the … Continue reading
