Social-Ecological Resilience and Law, Paperback / softback Book

Social-Ecological Resilience and Law Paperback / softback

Edited by Ahjond S. Garmestani, Craig R. Allen


Environmental law envisions ecological systems as existing in an equilibrium state, reinforcing a rigid legal framework unable to absorb rapid environmental changes and innovations in sustainability.

For the past four decades, "resilience theory," which embraces uncertainty and nonlinear dynamics in complex adaptive systems, has provided a robust, invaluable foundation for sound environmental management.

Reforming American law to incorporate this knowledge is the key to sustainability.

This volume features top legal and resilience scholars speaking on resilience theory and its legal applications to climate change, biodiversity, national parks, and water law.
