Concepts / Community

A community is a collection of interdependent organisms with its own learning capacity for self-organization.

They are a primary object of study in ecology and a variety of disciplines including sociology (including community studies) when those organisms are human.

A human community may be defined as a group of individuals who share mutual concern for one another’s welfare.

Every community is a network. Not every network is a community, and equally a network may encompass multiple communities.
