The authors start with a discussion of the relevant literature, including Nature Inspired Comuting as a framework in which to understand this work, and the process of biomimicry to be used in mimicking the necessary biological processes to create Digital Ecosystems. They then consider the relevant theoretical ecology in creating the digital counterpart of a biological ecosystem, including the topological structure of ecosystems, and evolutionary processes within distributed environments. This leads to a discussion of the relevant fields from computer science for the creation of Digital Ecosystems, including evolutionary computing, Multi-Agent Systems, and Service-Oriented Architectures.
