Ecology: Science or philately? An interdisciplinary analysis of sustainability by exploring if it is possible to get more and more information by reducing collateral environmental damages

Highlights•Biological conservation and transient sustainability mean civilization crisis.•The current mainstream of ecosystem ecology has neglected its foundations in physics.•Stationarity in open systems = equilibrium in closed ones, sealing the gap between ecology & physics.•A new understanding is reached analyzing human beings as ecological Maxwell's demons.•The unique long term solution combines conservation & interplanetary expansion.

Letter to the EditorEmpirical clues about the fulfillment of quantum principles in ecology: Potential meaning and theoretical challenges

Highlights•Growing evidence that conventional physics can explain the ecosystem functioning.•These evidences suggest a wave model with discrete (discontinuous) energy exchange.•Could we calculate an ecological equivalent of the physical Planck's constant (h)?•Slope of eco-kinetic energy vs. ecological Boltzmann constant = h's mantissa.•Meaning and consequences of this finding.

Distribution of species diversity values: A link between classical and quantum mechanics in ecology

Highlights•Math relationship amid variables (RV) = speed's variance in Boltzmann distribution.•Ecological equivalent of RV was found → distribution of diversity (H) values (EDH).•From the ecological state equation, a stationary ecosystem is a cavity resonator.•Biomass × dispersal × wavelength per EDH’s class = ecological Planck's constant (heec).•Exploration of the epistemological meaning and analytical consequences from heec.

Short communicationFrom a stationary to a non-stationary ecological state equation: Adding a tool for ecological monitoring

Highlights•Modeling ecosystem performance out of stationary ecological conditions (SEC).•State equation (SE) for SEC includes an expected value (ke(e)) of Boltzmann constant.•The sense of inequalities in SE can be taken as an instantaneous indicator of trends.•Replacement of ke(e) by ke(o)×heev; where heev: evolutionary Planck's constant.•SE for non-SEC; better fit between observed and expected distributions of diversity.
