JUST PUBLISHED Part 7: Using Entropy to Show Link Between Biodiversity and Ecosystem Health

Approaching it from a physics perspective allows us to understand why biodiversity is crucial for skin health

Our new published research explains how entropy predicts that higher biodiversity will result in a more stable ecosystem.

This helps bring the skin microbiome in line with other areas of ecology where the correlation between biodiversity and ecosystem health is widely accepted.

"...a decrease in biodiversity and therefore entropy may decrease stability and resilience, potentially leading to dysbiotic outcomes."

Why Does This Matter?

It could help us comprehend the magnitude of the negative impacts of biodiversity loss on the skin. 

Therefore, should we be making a much bigger effort to look after our skin?
