In this article Marianne E. Perhaps our next grant application as researchers needs to be with someone from outside our usual frame of reference, whether this is from another adjectival education, or someone from the educational mainstream, or from a different discipline altogether. At a time of greater recognition that interdisciplinary research is needed, this would seem sound anyway, and this links with the point I made earlier about the need for a combination of methodological approaches.

See Apologies to the Grandchildren. Our digital resilience partnership is securing connected infrastructure across rail, automotive and energy, ensuring the safety of integrated digital and mechanical systems. Ecological resilience emphasizes the capacity of a site to adjust to external shocks and changes in controlling interactions, while engineering resilience emphasizes its ability to return to a state that existed before perturbation. Holling, C. This model generates neutral stability as in Figure 2b.
Rangeland Systems pp Cite as. Nonequilibrium ecology and resilience theory have transformed rangeland ecology and management by challenging the traditional assumptions of ecological stability and linear successional dynamics. These alternative interpretations indicate that ecosystem dynamics are strongly influenced by disturbance, heterogeneity, and existence of multiple stable states.

Environmental science, on the other hand, has been shaped largely by the physical sciences and engineering. With the beginning of interdisciplinary efforts between the two fields, some of the fundamental differences between them are generating conflicts caused more by misunderstanding of basic concepts than by any difference in social purposes or methods.
Rapid climate change and altered disturbance regimes represent increasing stressors to the stability of existing ecosystems. Resilience is a widely used framework for post-disturbance response, but resilient responses are emergent properties resulting from component processes of persistence, recovery, and reorganization, with different mechanisms at work in each mode. We present a model of scaled resilience, which allows resilience to be decomposed across scales of space, time, and levels of biological organization. Using case examples of post-fire resilience in dry conifer forests of interior western North America, we illustrate the increased clarity gained by separating scale-dependent mechanisms of persistence, recovery, and reorganization. We conclude by describing how the scaled resilience framework can be applied in land and fire management by distinguishing relevant management actions before, during, and after wildfire.
The STAP anticipates that the development of common indicators of resilience which covers the related concepts of adaptation and transformation represents an opportunity to align approaches and common objectives, contribute to integrated strategies, and support common reporting between the Rio Conventions. The purpose of this effort is to synthesize the scientific understanding of resilience in agroecosystems, and, if feasible, propose indicators that could be applied by nations at the appropriate scale.

DOI: Holling introduced the word resilience into the ecological literature as a way of helping to understand the non-linear dynamics observed in ecosystems. Ecological resilience was defined as the amount of disturbance that an ecosystem could withstand without changing self-organized processes and structures defined as alternative stable states.
Дверь слегка приоткрылась, и на него уставилось круглое немецкое лицо. Дэвид приветливо улыбнулся. Он не знал, как зовут этого человека. - Deutscher, ja. Вы немец. Мужчина нерешительно кивнул.
Годы тренировки. Ложь была единственным способом избавить тебя от неприятностей. Сьюзан кивнула. - А неприятности немалые. - Ты сама видишь.
