From Metaphor to Measurement: Resilience of What to What?
Resilience is the magnitude of disturbance that can be tolerated before a socioecological system (SES) moves to a different region of state space controlled by a different set of processes.…
A Framework to Analyze the Robustness of Social-ecological Systems from an Institutional Perspective
This paper looks at the institutional configurations that affect the interactions among resources, resource users, public infrastructure providers, and public infrastructures and proposes a framework that helps identify potential vulnerabilities of SESs to disturbances.
Governance and the Capacity to Manage Resilience in Regional Social-Ecological Systems
The sustainability of regional development can be usefully explored through several different lenses. In situations in which uncertainties and change are key features of the ecological landscape and…
Resilience Management in Social-ecological Systems: a Working Hypothesis for a Participatory Approach
An evolving approach to analyzing resilience in SESs, as a basis for managing resilience, with a framework with four steps, involving close involvement of SES stakeholders is proposed.
Toward a network perspective of the study of resilience in social-ecological systems
A network perspective for social-ecological systems is proposed that enables us to better focus on the structure of interactions between identifiable components of the system and might be useful for developing formal models and comparing case studies of social-ECological systems.
Resilience, Adaptability, and Transformability in the Goulburn-Broken Catchment, Australia
We present a resilience-based approach for assessing sustainability in a sub-catchment of the Murray-Darling Basin in southeast Australia. We define the regional system and identify the main issues,…
Insight, part of a Special Feature on Exploring Resilience in Social-Ecological Systems Fifteen Weddings and a Funeral: Case Studies and Resilience- based Management
Resilience theory" is a systematic methodology for understanding the dynamics of coupled social-ecological systems (SESs). Its ongoing development requires that resilience theory be confronted with…
Grazing Management, Resilience, and the Dynamics of a Fire-driven Rangeland System
We developed a stylized mathematical model to explore the effects of physical, ecological, and economic factors on the resilience of a managed fire-driven rangeland system. Depending on grazing…

The articles in this special feature address how scholars and public officials can increase the prospects for future sustainable resource use by facilitating a diagnostic approach in selecting appropriate starting points for governance and monitoring, as well as by learning from the outcomes of new policies and adapting in light of effective feedback.
Invasion, Competition, and Biodiversity Loss in Urban Ecosystems
This work uses data from two urban centers and two taxa to link diversity loss with reduced community evenness among species in urban communities, and uses foraging efficiency as a mechanism to explain the loss of diversity.
