From the "Ecotone is a place where two different habitats meet. While it has some of the characteristics of each bordering community, certain plant species not found in either appear. The influence of the two bordering communities on each other is known as the “edge effect” and it is where much wildlife activity occurs.

The library at the nexus of the university is a place where different areas of study meet, overlap, and generate new ideas and energies beyond the confines of the individual disciplines that it supports."
