Abstract
  • The project focuses on nonequilibrium ecosystem dynamics, a body of scientific research that characterizes and interprets ecosystem change. INR summarizes knowledge from this field, describes ways in which the current management framework may be inconsistent with scientific findings, and helps identify options for future management. This paper is designed to be a starting place for a dialog between policy makers, scientists, managers and others that will lead to improved policies and practices.
