Ecological resilience provides a theoretical foundation for understanding how complex systems adapt to and recover . Tietoja kirjoittajasta. Lance H. Gunderson is Associate Professor and founding Chair of the Department of Environmental Studies, Emory University, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Ecological resilience provides a theoretical foundation for understanding how complex systems adapt to and recover from localized disturbances like hurricanes, fires, pest outbreaks, and floods, as well as large-scale perturbations such as climate change. Ecologists have developed resilience theory over the past three decades in an effort to explain surprising and nonlinear dynamics of complex adaptive systems.

It is exciting to hold in one's hands a single volume containing thirty-five years of the key article s on ecological resilience.

Foundations of Ecological Resilience - Lance H. Gunderson. gunderson and craig r. allen. Why Resilience? Why Now? Lance h. GUNDERSON, Department of Environmental Studies, Emory University, Atlanta. Development of ecological resilience theory began in the 1960s with attempts to mathematically model dynamic ecosystems. Early models (Lewontin 1969, May 1977) focused on the stability of systems-that is, the processes that control or mediate the persistence of ecological structures.

His 1973 paper on the resilience of ecological systems had a substantial impact within ecology and other natural and social sciences. He has also contributed important ideas to ecological management, including Adaptive management and the Adaptive Cycle. More recently his work on the cross-scale structure and dynamics of ecosystems has been highly influential. Adaptive environmental assessment and management. Holling's most cited articles include

Ecological resilience provides a theoretical foundation for understanding how complex systems adapt to and recover from localized disturbances like hurricanes, fires, pest outbreaks, and floods, as well as large-scale perturbations such as climate change. Ecologists have developed resilience theory over the past three decades in an effort to explain surprising and nonlinear dynamics of complex adaptive systems. Resilience theory is especially important to environmental scientists for its role in underpinningadaptive management approaches to ecosystem and resource management. Foundations of Ecological Resilience is a collection of the most important articles on the subject of ecological resilience―those writings that have defined and developed basic concepts in the field and help explain its importance and meaning for scientists and researchers. The book’s three sections cover articles that have shaped or defined the concepts and theories of resilience, including key papers that broke new conceptual ground and contributed novel ideas to the field; examples that demonstrate ecological resilience in a range of ecosystems; and articles that present practical methods for understanding and managing nonlinear ecosystem dynamics. Foundations of Ecological Resilience is an important contribution to our collective understanding of resilience and an invaluable resource for students and scholars in ecology, wildlife ecology, conservation biology, sustainability, environmental science, public policy, and related fields.
