Ecology of life value: Ecology with life-value coordinates so that the totality of relations among species, their reproduction and distribution is conceived to be better rather than worse by the coherent life-field advance and biodiversification it maintains and develops to a more comprehensively inclusive life system whole: in short, the primary axiom of value at an ecological level of conception.
