of the rela!onships between the parts and that the whole is greater than the sum of
its parts.

1 / 1 ptsQues!on 3
In a natural system, what is fractal behaviour/ self similarity?
When a system looks complex at all scales.
When a system looks the same at all scales.
Correct!
When a system looks complex at small scales, but simple at larger scales.

1 / 1 ptsQues!on 4
A system is chao!c when:
Predic"on is severely limited.

Why is scale important when we study natural systems?

Small scale phenomena can always be scaled up to behave the same as large scale
phenomena, and thus can be studied together.
