Explore the complex and fascinating role of nutrition in biology with The Nature of Nutrition. This groundbreaking book introduces the Geometric Framework, a comprehensive theoretical approach to analyzing nutrition and its impact on individual organisms, populations, and ecosystems. Dive into a wealth of examples and learn how this framework can help tackle issues in applied nutrition, from optimizing diets for livestock to addressing the epidemic of human obesity and metabolic disease.

The authors provide a helpful section in the methods on how to interpret nutritional geometry graphs, which is probably too long for me to screenshot here. I recommend their book The Nature of Nutrition for a more detailed discussion of the method.      source
