Scientific has made major advances in understanding how Nature is interconnected. Much of this understanding has come from a paradigm shift into thinking about things in Nature as interconnected parts of a larger system. Systems biology has been aided by the application of network theory. Much of this field requires an understanding of graphs as well as logarithms and exponentials. But, within these mathematical and geometric tools, ideas about energy flow within ecosystems are starting to emerge. In this musings edition, I offer some of the papers that I have read on this very exciting subject.

My name is Bill Graham. As a Marine Biologist who has worked in the US and Mexico for 30 years, I am a student of Nature, a teacher, a researcher, and a nature photographer. Through my work, I have acquired an ever growing passion for how everything in Nature is connected. Today, I travel extensively contemplating about, writing about, and photographing Nature’s connections. I also work with conservation projects in the USA and Mexico and mentor talented youth.
