The Matrix in Ecology
A stop-motion animation describing how the matrix influences species that depend on remnant vegetation

  1. In ecology, the matrix is not about people in long trench coats dodging bullets while plugged into a hyper-real computer program.
  2. When we talk about the matrix in ecology we are talking about the areas that surround patches of remnant vegetation.

Based on a research paper published in the Journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution
