How social-ecological systems cope with crises

In this volume, T. Luthe and R. Wyss publish a paper on conceptualizing resilience of social-ecological systems. Such systems undergo constant phases of exploitation or growth, conservation, release (when prone to disturbances and crises), and reorganization. These phases are displayed on a time line and direction of development to stress the human capacity for deliberate transformations for increasing resilience by dampening the effects of crises, illustrated by adaptive waves.

Introducing adaptive waves as a concept to inform mental models of resilience
