ECOLOGY AND SOCIETY - Network analysis as a tool for quantifying the dynamics of metacoupled systems: an example using global soybean trade
Published on October 14, 2018
Network analysis is a powerful and flexible tool that has been used to quantify social, economic, and ecological systems. We evaluate the utility of network analysis for quantifying metacoupled systems by assessing global soybean trade among 217 countries.
