A practical objective of ENA in general, and environ analysis in particular, is to trace material and energy flow-storage through the complex network of system interactions. The network environ approach has been a fruitful way of holistically investigating ecological systems. In particular, a series of 'network properties' such as indirect effects ratio, homogenization, and mutualism have been observed using this analysis, which consider the role of each entity embedded in a larger system.
