Figure 9.14 Variation of exergy and specific exergy in comparison with heterogeneity (A) and species richness (B) along the gradient of eutrophication gradient. For each situation, respectively, non-eutrophicated (ZC), intermediate eutrophicated (INT), and eutrophicated (EUT), we indicate the average values and the standard deviation, taking into account the entire yearly data set. The spatial variation of exergy and specific exergy was significantly correlated (r = 0.59; p < 0.05). The spatial variation of heterogeneity was not significantly correlated with exergy or specific exergy (r =- 0.48 and r = 0.38, respectively; p < 0.05).

We respect Nature and it gives us its bounty, but in the recent past greedy money hungry corporations have made us all so destructive, so wasteful.
