Overview

C. S. HOLLING is Arthur R. Marshall, Jr. professor in ecological sciences at the University of Florida.
STEPHEN S. LIGHT is affiliated with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
Focuses on complex regional ecosystems and tries to answer two key questions: Do resource management institutions learn, and if so, how? How do ecosystems respond to management actions?

Successfully explains the many ways in which resource management can be confounded by the temporal and spatial scales of ecosystem change. In doing so, it justifies its main conclusion that institutions should try to ‘manage by change rather than simply react to it.´ (Environment)
