ain't science great?

Species Are to Ecosystems as Cells Are to the Human Body, According to a Mathematical Model

One of my professors brought this up with me in a discussion many years ago. The microcosm mirrors the macrocosm. Even in a grain of sand, you will find worlds yet unknown, strange and sometimes familiar.
