"Resilience, timing, adaptation--these are the three pillars upon
which the emergent properties of interacting systems rest. When the
systems are the economy and the environment, understanding of the
relationships among these concepts is crucial. This volume does a
better job of explaining how to manage both money and nature to
ensure humanity's long-term future than any other work I know of.
Read and reflect."--John L. Casti, Santa Fe Institute, and
Technical University of Vienna, in praise of "Panarchy"
"This is a book that should be read, or at least dipped into, by anyone concerned with the sustainable management of ecosystems--whether for conservation or other goals--through teaching, study, or active practice. It will make any reader think and, hopefully, reconsider how he or she understands the diverse systems within which 'nature' and people interact at many different scales."--Martin F. Price, Centre for Mountain Studies, Perth College, UK, in praise of "Panarchy"
