Natural ecosystems contain a wide variety of organisms—humans, plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and so forth—that interact in the web of life. The more species within an ecosystem, the more potential for beneficial interaction we have. The same goes for genetic diversity within a species. In our designs, it should be a goal to increase or maintain biodiversity to achieve greater stability. Note that doesn’t mean static stability (the ecosystem never changes), but dynamic stability (the system changes, ebbs, and flows but never fails).
Note that doesn’t mean static stability (the ecosystem never changes), but dynamic stability (the system changes, ebbs, and flows but never fails). Species may come and species may go. The same goes for individuals, but if there are many species and genetically different individuals present, the whole system will not collapse with those changes. This means the ecosystem, on the whole, is more adaptable. Interaction between species allows resources to be exchanged—whether those are food and nutrients, oxygen, shelter, or predation.
Part of the goal here is to create as many closed loops as possible. In other words, how can we take the waste products of one system and turn them into the resources of another one? Also, as parts of our system degrade, we should look at how to use them for the next highest use. Finally, we must figure out how each resource in our design responds to being used. Does use cause it to increase or decrease, or is it unaffected? Is it lost when unused? Does it create pollution or system degradation when used?
