Buzz Holling and Panarchy

Just a quick note to give a link to a blog post at "Resilience Science" about a Worldwatch Magazine article by Thomas Homer-Dixon discussing the work of C.S. "Buzz" Holling, an ecologist who has worked with complex systems theory to formulate concepts such as the adaptive cycle and panarchy.

Holling's work has been influential in the development of resilience thinking, which is an approach I used in my own research and have mentioned in previous posts.

I'm jealous of your blog. It's so developed and professional like. I think I am going to start ripping of it immediately.

Are you guys getting ready to head back to Hawaii? How about a pit-stop in Bali first?

Thanks for the link to the Resilience Science post: very thought-provoking. Could be read in parallel with Jared Diamond's "Collapse".....
