Abstract excerpt: … I argue, the existence of ecological laws would make ecological explanations irreducible to even the most complete possible physical explanations of the same phenomena. Ecological laws would make ecology genuinely autonomous from physics. My comment: This is a fool’s argument.  Serious scientists know physics and chemistry must be linked to biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry. The links must be placed into the context of…
