Resilience, recovery and the ecology of change

Our world is changing rapidly and the subsequent consequences for socio-ecological systems will be profound. A trio of threats loom: increased frequency of extreme events, shifts in baseline environmental conditions and rapid turnover in the species found in different locations.

Adapting our science to better reflect this new normal requires the acceptance that some types of change are inevitable and possibility adaptive. Moving forward, it allows us to address such issues as: How can we best describe alternative trajectories of change? How can we identify resilience in a system? And what types of interventions guide recovery and restoration towards a future state?
