Lovelock's classic DaisyWorld model, demonstrating homeostasis via ecosystem feedback loops (daisy albedo). DaisyWorld was invented to explain how the Gaia Hypothesis did not require a sentient Earth, but only feedback loops. DaisyWorld uses a flat world, where each daisy location is identical. DaisyBall and DaisyWorld are used in teaching high school and university level environmental science.
