    2. Complexity is my absolute favorite thing to study There are fewer subjects integral to complexity than ecology and cosmology This lecture series in ecology was superb Kricher masterfully guided his audience through how the earth function as a system, as well as through all of Earth s nested systems.This is systems science at its best.
