Synthesis Thresholds in Ecological and Social – Ecological Systems : a Developing Database

  title={Synthesis Thresholds in Ecological and Social – Ecological Systems : a Developing Database},
  author={Brian M Walker and J Meyers},
Increasing interest in regime shifts in ecological and linked social–ecological systems (SESs) has placed a strong focus on the thresholds of change. However, research into this topic has been hampered by a lack of empirical data. This paper describes a developing database established to address this need. The database is freely available and comprises a set of summarized published examples and a searchable bibliographic database of publications on the topic. Thresholds in the database are… CONTINUE READING
