Networks are ubiquitous. Developments in network analysis have revealed interesting properties regarding their interconnectedness such as indirect pathways, cycling, control, and relational attributes (such as indirect mutualism).
Recent approaches have focused on the embedding and overlay of one network with another, creating a network of networks. In this presentation, an overview of ecological network analysis methodology is presented along with two case studies of networks of networks.
The first combines control analysis with food web analysis to assess the impact of dam construction in the Mekong River. The second combines a food web model with a social movement network to assess the spread of invasive species in managed, recreational lakes in Nebraska, USA.
