The Use of Discontinuities and Functional Groups to Assess Relative Resilience in Complex Systems
We propose that the determination of discontinuities, and the quantification of function both within and across scales, produce relative measures of resilience in ecological and other systems. Expand

Pathology and failure in the design and implementation of adaptive management.
The conceptual underpinnings for adaptive management are simple; there will always be inherent uncertainty and unpredictability in the dynamics and behavior of complex ecological systems as a resultExpand

Quantifying spatial resilience
We review the history and current status of spatial resilience in the research literature, introduce additional elements of a spatial analytical approach to understanding resilience, present a framework for resilience operationalization and provide an overview of critical knowledge and technology gaps.
