Matrix and Ecotones

If we use the paradigm of the ecological matrix to analyze the environmental complexity we can consider the ecotones as the projection on the surface of the elements deeply anchored in the matrix bottom. But again the origin of such functional structures is determined by the interference between matrix processes and species-specific processes.

Matrix complexity has the capacity to produce emergent processes that in turn create the discontinuity that we can observe at the surface.
