As pointed out by several calculations above, ecosystems have too many distinguishable parts for classical understanding. Even if middle-number systems, possess enough components to exceed the limits, we may for instance consider our capabilities of doing experiments and sampling. In order to accept this, we need to recognize that we do have to live with a high uncertainty, e.g., often expressed in the fact that our standard deviations on any measurement that we make are far beyond the levels accepted by our "colleagues" from physics and chemistry.
