"The natural world, to be seen truly, must be seen whole, even as a mosaic can be perceived only when its multiple fragments are joined. Once you have identified a plant, what other organisms might you expect to find in its company? What patterns reveal themselves when we look at the entire complex of organisms in, on, or around a plant?" — John Eastman, Book of Field and Roadside.
