Paths are flow channels of energy and matter in ecosystems. The structures and functions of ecosystems are supported by the flow paths passing energy and matter. The path diversity is one aspect of the trophic structure diversity of ecosystems. In the present paper, the measure reflecting the flow path diversity in ecosystems along the path length are formulated by defining base paths and equivalent base paths.
