ain't science great?
ok, so it's not directly about permaculture.
the scientists don't mention permaculture, probably don't know about permaculture
But show that permaculture principles apply in nature

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

"An ecosystem is like a great organism in that the species in it behave in a manner similar to the manner in which cells behave within the human body: the group forms a permanent entity, although the entities that form it are constantly being substituted."

very interesting article

I think that your headline is misleading, and I also think this says a lot more about how we process and understand nature than about how nature really works.

But still thanks for the link to the article!

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.
