Service Description: Understanding the nature of species interactions in an ecosystem is important for a variety of reasons. Firstly, the network of interactions defines the biostructure of the ecosystem. The predator/prey interactions go a long way toward defining the pathway of energy, nutrient, and in some cases, contaminant flow through the ecosystem. Secondly, by knowing the network structure of the interactions, it is possible to use this information to model the effects of perturbations (both natural and anthropogenic) on the ecosystem. And, lastly, knowledge of the species interactions enables a better understanding of the structure, function, and evolution of the ecosystem.
