Ecosystems are living, breathing complex systems, offering us fascinating insights on what makes some systems endure while others fail. In our rapidly changing world, these insights can mean the difference between survival and death for earth’s inhabitants, both humans and other species. In this talk, SFI Vice President for Science Dr. Jennifer Dunne explores the connections between ecology, economics and the stability of complex systems, from early work by Bob May and Buzz Holling to the latest research influencing critical decisions about our world’s future.
