Understanding interrelations in ecology
with an interactive knowledge map
Use one of the two interactive diagrams in ecology
Aim of a diagram:
Show the direct and indirect causes and consequences of global warming.
EDIT a LinkNotions diagram in ecology
If you have a LinkNotions account, you can copy the diagram into your LinkNotions account and modify it. Enter the diagram. Click the green button on the top right of the diagram. A window opens. Click “Create”. A copy will be created into your account. It is opened in edit mode. You now can edit this copy.
CREATE your own interactive diagrams from scratch
All you need is a LinkNotions account. Enter your account and click “Create workspace.”
Here’s how to create and edit a new diagram.
Here are the different diagrams (as examples) created by LinkNotions.
Direct and indirect causes:
Click the top of the notion “Global Warming” (M7) and you will see highlighted in green the causes of global warming:
- Greenhouse effect (E10)
- Increasing concentration of methane (G15)
- Water vapor concentration in the atmosphere (F7)
Highlighting in green means that the two notions are evolving in the same direction. For example, if the greenhouse effect is amplified, then global warming also boosts. A highlight in red means that the two phenomena evolve in the opposite direction.
By clicking on the top of one of one of these notions, for example the notion of “greenhouse effect” (E10), you will see highlighted in green concepts such as:
- Emissions of SO2
- NOx Emission
- CO2 emission
These are the direct causes of the greenhouse effect and indirect causes of global warming.
So you can continue to explore the causes of indirect causes by clicking the top of them.
You can change this diagram to complete it or if you see the influences differently than the authors.
The diagram has over 130 notions and more than 250 links.
It is under construction. In fact, it is a beginning of a more complex diagram.
It includes only very little explanation of notions or links.
