Summary
Abstract: Network analysis is a phenomenological approach that holistically quantifies the structure and function of food webs by evaluating biomasses and energy flows. The efficiency with which energy and material is transferred, assimilated, and dissipated conveys significant information about the structure and function of food webs (Ulanowicz 2004; Ulanowicz and Platt 1985; Baird and Ulanowicz 1989 and ...
