This publication spells out the theoretical constitution, method and philosophy of the technology of autecology. The autecological method specializes in the interactions of person organisms (and their species-specific diversifications) with the spatio-temporal dynamics in their setting as a foundation for reading styles of variety and abundance in typical structures. This organism-based method of ecological interpretation presents a robust substitute to extra conventional techniques and relates mechanistically to the underlying disciplines of anatomy, body structure, and behaviour. The publication comprises illustrations, particular examples, graphs, maps, and different diagrams.
