And Now? Ecosystem Research!
With Lindeman’s great discovery a new epoch began. Ecology, up to that time regarded as the last nature reserve for lovers of butterflies and birds, suddenly was able to cope with modern scientific disciplines. Exact measurement and exact quantification of results were now possible, as well as the inclusion of these results into one grand framework. So ecology was accepted, especially when the problems of the ecosphere became obvious. The huge success of the International Biological Program (IBP) and the popularily of ecology even among molecular biologists are not the least results of Lindeman’s discovery.
