Description - New Models for Ecosystem Dynamics and Restoration by Richard J. Hobbs

As scientific understanding about ecological processes has grown, the idea that ecosystem dynamics are complex, nonlinear and often unpredictable has gained prominence. Of particular importance is the idea that rather than following an inevitable progression toward an ultimate endpoint, some ecosystems may occur in a number of states depending on past and present ecological conditions. The emerging idea of 'restoration thresholds' also enables scientists to recognise when ecological systems are likely to recover on their own and when active restoration efforts are needed.
