The role of biodiversity conservation in the transition to rural sustainability by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on the Role of Biodiversity Conservation in the Transition to Rural Sustainability( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents interdisciplinary advances in theory and practice pertaining to rural sustainability and sets forth an action research agenda and policy prescriptions to support rural sustainability with special emphasis on the Accession Countries to the EU. The book will address four themes. The first theme describes recent developments in tools and approaches to linking science, policy and management for biodiversity conservation improvement and their role in the transition to rural sustainability. The second is on challenges for biodiversity conservation in rural areas in Europe and North America as EU enlargement comes to be a reality. The third covers comparing and contrasting case study applications in biodiversity conservation from NATO and NATO partner countries. The last identifies new opportunities for re-structuring science, policy and management to improve biodiversity conservation in rural areas in the context of an enlarged European Union
Barriers and bridges to the renewal of ecosystems and institutions( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result of a three-year project involving a combination of prominent ecologists and social scientists, Barriers and Bridges to the Renewal of Ecosystems and Institutions reviews a series of regional examples in its broad-ranging exploration of two key questions: Do institutions learn? and How do ecosystems respond to management actions? The book is a continuation of a series on adaptive environmental management. To answer these questions, the team of researchers looked at common patterns of pathology in managed ecosystems, whereby resource exploitation leads to ecological, social, and institutional breakdown, followed by crisis and, in some examples, reform and learning. Following an introduction by C.S. Holling describing the range of barriers and bridges to be discussed, six regional examples are reviewed. The management histories in New Brunswick forests, the Everglades, Chesapeake Bay, the Columbia River, the Great Lakes, and the Baltic Sea demonstrate how people and ecosystems coevolve. In the third section contributors offer perspectives from social science to suggest broad critical strategies for surmounting barriers and renewing damaged ecosystems. The final chapter provides a unique synthesis that compares ecological and social dynamics. This book will appeal to any reader with an interest in our environment, from property rights advocates to resource practitioners and theorists to environmental activists

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The application of resiliency theory to findings of the two case studies disclosed two distinct patterns of behavior that had, in the past, fostered vulnerability to evolve in water supply management. In the case of southestern Pennsylvania, the municipal water supply systems through a series of disjoined incremental decisions at the local water supply management level have collectively increased the vulnerability of the whole region of water users to shortage due to drought
