During the past few decades, examinations of social, biological, and communication networks have taken on increased attention. While numerous models of these networks have arisen, some have lacked visual representations. This is particularly true in ecology, where scientists have often been restricted to at most three dimensions when creating graphical representations of pattern and process. I will introduce an application of dot product representation graphs that allows scientists to view the high dimensional connections in ecological networks. Using actual data, example graphs will be developed and analyzed using key measures of graph theory.
