xii, 218 pages. Page dimensions: 248 x 170mm. "The capacity of an ecosystem to tolerate disturbance - without collapsing into a qualitatively different state controlled by a different set of processes - is known as ecosystem resilience. A resilient ecosystem can: undergo some change and still retain the same controls on function and structure; is capable of a degree of self-organisation; and has the ability to build and increase its capacity for learning and adaptation. Written by some of the leading international thinkers in the field, 'Exploring Resilience in Social-Ecological Systems' provides a state-of-the-science account of resilience theory and some fascinating insights into the subject."
