Can we apply the term 'eco-system' to a non-ecological process? Eg "he has designed the eco-system of the university to be the leading educational institution in the country"?
Thanks for your response. I share your views completely. At an educational institution in my country, this term was used in exactly the same context. When I pointed out the wrongful use of the term, and the ambiguous meaning of the sentence, I was told I was being pedantic. Now I shall try again to push my point across. Thanks again.
