2.1 Resilience of a system:

QuestionAnswer
1. Equilibrium resilience concentrates on stability near and equilibrium steady-state where resistance to disturbance and speed of return to the equilibrium are used to measure resilience.
2. Ecosystem resilience emphasizes conditions far from any equilibrium in which instabilities can flip a system into another regime of behavior , to another stability domain. Measure of resilience is the magnitude of disturbance that can be absorbed or accommodated before the sy
Examples of natural resource management led to a less resilient system in the sense of ecosystem resilience: 1. The loss of genetic variation in small populations may lead to extinction.
Examples of natural resource management led to a less resilient system in the sense of ecosystem resilience: 2. Stability of flows by dams, exotic fishes may kill native fishes.
Examples of natural resource management led to a less resilient system in the sense of ecosystem resilience: 3. Suppression of fire-prone ecosystems may cause huge fires due to fuel buildup.
Examples of natural resource management led to a less resilient system in the sense of ecosystem resilience: 4. Monoculture, energy intensive farming practices reduce variation and loss of resilience. Require large input of energy and often societal subsidies.
Examples of natural resource management led to a less resilient system in the sense of ecosystem resilience: 5. Natural, lateral flow variation (periodic food plan inundation). Attempted command-and-control of river flows, allowing expansive food-plan development, resulted in un-resilient river-social system and economic destruction.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:
