In the Current Era M-life, B-life and A-life often merge and form hybrid ecologies, since all three are continually changing and adapting to each other, especially because of the ubiquity of biotech and bionanotech.
Hylonanecology - Text by M. Alan Kazlev A nanecology built solely on inorganic nanobots. The most extreme form is Machinonanecology. In practice however most hylonanecologies and bionanecologies tend to merge, with each using components found in the other; the difference between them being one of degree rather than of kind.
Hylonano - Text by Todd Drashner Molecular Nanotechnology (dry nanotech). Use of artificially created non-biomolecular systems as replicators, assemblers, or components of molecular nanotechnology; any molecular nanotechnology not based on bio-molecules or biotech. Sometimes referred to as "Drexlerian nanotech".
