In a virtual multidimensional space with integral characteristics (such as abundance, the sizes of individuals, and components of species diversity) plotted along its axes, points of samples from various biocoenotic assemblages form similar multilayered hill-shaped figures. A brief review of the literature and an original data analysis show that these structures, which are typical for stable states of biocoenotic systems, as well as the laws and processes that form them, do not depend on the observer, i.e., on measures and units of measurement that are used for describing the major integral characteristics of these systems.
