Wealth, conflicts, frustration, madness, death: Pink Floyd’s album “Dark Side of the Moon” express major philosophical ideas about life - but one could also tell the story of past, present and future ecological networks research by the same lines. We will explore feelings and thoughts brought up in this album in the context of ecological research: how has ecological research developed until now - were we racing around to come up behind us again? What came as a heavy blow, but we sorted out? -, and what does the future hold - is there a dark side of the moon?.
