How Structured Is the Entangled Bank? The Surprisingly Simple Organization of Multiplex Ecological Networks Leads to Increased Persistence and Resilience
Pies represent the relative involvement of the 106 species in trophic (blue), negative (grey), and positive (red) non-trophic interactions; darker (resp. lighter) color represents outgoing (resp. incoming) links (legend on the bottom left). Pie diameter is proportional to the species total degree. Ellipses around groups of species represent the multiplex clusters. Numbers correspond to the cluster ID used in the main text. Clusters of the same color have similar 3D connectivity but differ in the identity of interacting species; i.e., they belong to the same “multiplex functional group” defined later on. Please see http://pbil.univ-lyon1.fr/software/multiplex for an interactive version of the figure. Underlying data can be found in the Dryad repository: http://dx.doi.org/10.5061/dryad.b4vg0 .
