I just can’t see how, in a topological secondary extinction-only situation, you could ever get higher levels of secondary extinction than you would in the presence of link strength compensation and top-down cascades. This really calls into question the previous results. Therefore, I’ve either overlooked something so far, or, I’m looking at the wrong set of results!

I’ve been out of the office and lab now for the better part of a month; just can’t seem to get healthy. I can’t check these results, really, without being able to sit down with the big computers. Hopefully, I’ll be back to work next week. A Miami Dolphins victory tomorrow could be just what the doctor ordered.
