Water metabolism in Socio-Ecological Systems:
A Multi-Scale Integrated Approach
Liver 1.8 9.7 17.4
Brain 1.4 11.6 16.2
Heart 0.3 21.3 6.4
Kidneys 0.3 21.3 6.4
Muscles 28.0 0.6 16.8
Fat 15.0 0.2 3.0
Others 23.2 0.6 14.0
PARTS OF MESSI level n-1
WHOLE MESSI level n
Metabolic Rate = 1.16 W/kg
Endosomatic Flow = 81 W
Total mass = 70 kg
We don’t believe we can cut food to Messi, because we have
a multi-level knowledge of human metabolism!
