Exploring Ecosystem Resilience
Resilience represents the capacity of ecosystems to undergo change in response to external drivers or internal disturbances while still retaining integrity and function. Understanding resilience is critical for natural resource management and conservation in a rapidly changing world. Questions abound regarding the amount of change ecosystems can withstand before transitioning to alternative states, the characteristics of such states, and the ecological processes that confer system resilience. This seminar series explores resilience both as an ecosystem property and as a management framework.
