It has been suggested that omnivores have a greater functional influence as predators, because compared to herbivores, they are relatively inefficient at grazing. [83] Trophic levels are part of the holistic or complex systems view of ecosystems. [84] [85] Each trophic level contains unrelated species that are grouped together because they share common ecological functions, giving a macroscopic view of the system. [86] While the notion of trophic levels provides insight into energy flow and top-down control within food webs, it is troubled by the prevalence of omnivory in real ecosystems.

Entomophilous: seed plants pollinated by insects. And reciprocally, the ways of life evolved as the brain and its functions became better fitted to them and more complex. I personally follow Whitehead in believing that all the basic constituents of reality at every level have a life-like quality right down to sub-atomic particles. This will include everything from stories about behaviours and interactions between organisms, to discussions of the amazing role that the inanimate plays in our appreciation of nature.
