Diversit y analy sis, holistic energetics, and statistics. The resonator complex model of the vegetation stand.

Orlóci, L. 2015. Diversity analysis, holistic energetics, and statistics. The resonator complex model of the vegetation stand. SCADA Publishing, Canada. Online edition:

The book presents results from a conceptual analysis of disorder-based entropy (DBE) and energy-based entropy (EBE). DBE is the central disorder scalar in diversity analysis and EBE in holistic energetics. As such DBE and EBE are well conditioned, dialect-defining quantities in statistics. DBE and EBE are not interchangeable functions. Why? DBE is parameterised by probabilities taken from the elementary population level, but EBE takes probabilities form the holistic level of the vegetation stand itself. Seamless adaption of concepts and terminology in stand-level community ecology permeates the entire text. Key references are listed, and a complete step-by-step example included in the Appendices.

Statistical quantum ecology: Essays on the resonator complex model of the vegetation stand

Orlóci, L. 2016. Statistical quantum ecology. Essays on the resonator complex model of the vegetation stand . SCADA Publishing, Canada. Online Edition: 6509504

Five of my earlier essays are bound into one in this volume. The essays introduce a family of novel conceptual tools for use in proxy scaling of the stand’s potential energy level. The stand is considered for modelling as a resonator complex. The model’s characteristic functions, written for energy-based entropy, are probability based and specific to historic phylogeny, current environmental mediation, and the ubiquitous chance effects. The approach is holistic and multi-scale. Survey type ecological data can be used to determine the parameters of the characteristic functions. As a paradigm defining novelty in ecological energetic studies, the focus of interest is moved from the problem area of calorific flow to the space-time structural dynamic of the stand’s potential energy.

Quantum Ecology 2nd ed.

The infusion of quantum theoretical principles allows the study focus of ecological energetics to shift from the conventional calorific (trophic) flow in ecosystems to the potential energy structure of the vegetation. The books contents cover the theory and techniques in a unique account centred on the energy equation. The equation’s component terms define energy footprints specific to ecology’s basic processes, such as historic phylogeny, current environmental mediation of transience, and chance. What gives practical value to the energy equation is its ability to be parameterised by the usual type of survey or experimental data.

Energy-based vegetation mapping 

Orlóci, L. 2015. Energy-based vegetation mapping. A case study in statistical quantum ecology. SCADA Publishing, Canada. Online Edition. 

Available from CreateSpace eStore:

Quantum Ecology provides the tools needed to map the vegetation’s energy structure onto a ground grid. The mapping parameters are components of the energy structure issuing from historic phylogeny, current environmental forcing, and ubiquitous chance events.  Concomitant instability maps reveal increased energy structural stability under decreasing species richness.

The book presents further details of a new paradigm intended for statistical studies of stand-level vegetation energetics.  The approach is holistic and the techniques are quantum ecological.  The case study’s objective is stand-level vegetation mapping by energy criteria. Since the vegetation process is conceived as an energy structural phenomenon, the obvious choice for mapping is an energy structural component.

The book’s classification model assumes a three-parted structure with components issuing from historic phylogeny, current environmental mediation, and the ubiquitous random events. The modus operandi is simple: isolate the structural components analytically, construct the maps for display on the sampling grid, then probe the maps and other numeric results for generalizable regularities. Regarding the data base, most types of vegetation survey data are admissible.

Orlóci, L. 2014. The vegetation process. A holistic study of long-term community energetics in East Beringia. SCADA Publishing, Canada. Online edition

Process, as the Boouses this term, implies simultaneous execution of two fundamental functions in the continuity. One creates complexity, the other reduces it. Ecologists refer to these as community assembly and disassembly. The process requires energy input which determines the momentary potential energy state of the community. This is measurably true in terms of Max Planck’s energy-based entropy. We find potential energy increasing when new species (taxa, community elements) are added to or others proliferate in the community, and decreasing when s
pecies drop out or their performance declines...

Vegetation dynamics is scalable based on the characteristics of the process trajectory, the path traced out by vegetation transitions in time. It is argued that since the trajectory is symptomatic of factor influences and governing principles, it has to be an object of central interest in dynamic studies. Theoretical points, scaling scenarios, and analytical tools are the main topics.

The book revisits the classical idea that the potential energy structure of primary succession is a seamless fusion of footprints specific to basic processes which operate on all scales – phylogeny, environmental mediation, and chance. The idea is tested in quantum analysis of a vegetation  chronosere on cinder in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.

On the energy structure of plant communities

Orlóci, L. 2013. On the energy structure of natural vegetation. In search for community governance rules. SCADA Publishing, London, Canada. Expanded Online Edition:

Vegetation Science meets quantum theory in the energy-based entropy model of this book. The model is based on Max Planck's postulate that potential energy and entropy are interchangeable parameters in resonator complexes. What is a typical outcome of the model in vegetation studies? The model hands users a set of entropy estimates and probabilities based on which the strength and uniqueness of a metacommunity's energy structure can be characterised in comparative terms.

Statistical multiscaling in dynamic ecology

Orlóci, L. 2012. Statistical multiscaling in dynamic ecology: Probing the long-term vegetation process for patterns of parameter oscillation. Scada Publishing, London. 94 p. Revised Online edition:

The Book's conceptualisation of multiscaling theory presents the Next Step in the study of the long-term vegetation process. The context is statistical and the process generating events have proxy in the compositional transitions of the palynological spectra. Familiarity with multiscaling is not a pre-requisite. The reader shall learn from the examples how multiscaling techniques helped to identify the self-similar (fractal) nature of the process, isolate low and high instability phases, locate hotspots of compositional transitions, and link these to delayed climatic effects. He or she shall also learn how to gauge process homeomorphy among sites, isolate the random and directed effects found braided into the process, and do much more within a broad yet formal probabilistic framework. The Book's contents are taken in part from a graduate course offered in the Ecology program at UFRGS in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The examples use palynological spectra from sites on the Hungarian Great Plain and in the adjacent Carpathian Mountains. Application programs are available from the author.

Self-organization and mediated transience in plant communities

Orlóci, L. 2012. Self-organisation and mediated transience in plant communities. Scada Publishing, London. 70 p. Revised Online Edition:  distributed by CreateSpace.

A novel, signal theoretical solution is sketched out for the ecological problem of how to identify and quantitatively express the assembly rules of plant communities. A case study for testing the solution leads to the astonishing conclusion that the phylogenetic signal outperforms the current environmental signal in intensity close to 7 to 1. This indicates high stability and low inclination to environment mediated transience in the community.

Hawai'i - Emlékezéseim
A Szigetek természetes szépsége és a Hawaii nép melegsége örökre elbűvölte az írót. Könyvében szélesen rátekint a szigetek keletkezésére, gazdag helyi biotájára és népének történetére. Sajátos narativja igen alkalmas ezirányú érzelmei átadására épp úgy mint a mélyről fakadó környezeti és tarsadalmi kritikák megfogalmazására. A könyv több mint 150 képpel illusztrált.

In the well-crafted Hungarian narrative the author tells a rich story of the land she considers her second home, the Hawaiian Islands, and its people. The story opens broad vistas of the natural beauty of the Islands and the history of its inhabitants weaving the story’s tread from well before Hawaii became an American possession. The author’s original pictures taken over 40 years enliven the presentation.
