Raymond Lindeman and the Trophic-Dynamic Concept in Ecology

Raymond Lindeman and the Trophic-Dynamic Concept in Ecology

R E Cook. Science.

Abstract

Lindeman's classic paper on energy flow in ecosystems was initially rejected for publication in Ecology. Reviewers felt there were insufficient data to support the theoretical model and that theoretical essays were inappropriate for Ecology. The paper was subsequently accepted by Thomas Park, the zoological editor, after correspondence with G. Evelyn Hutchinson who indicated the importance of theory in the development of ecology.
