Implications of environmental complexity for science and policy
Department of Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, University of Lund.
1991 (English)In: Global Environmental Change, ISSN 0959-3780, E-ISSN 1872-9495, Vol. 1, no 3, p. 235-247Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Theoretical as well as empirical reevaluations of nature are occurring in response to failures to predict environmental changes, recent developments in systems theory, and new research into environmental attitudes. At present, holistic concepts in ecological theory are marked by dissension, and environmental policy is beset with turmoil — both situations are due in part to differing perceptions of the role of complexity in natural systems. This article identifies and analyses links between changing scientific perspectives on nature and emerging perceptions of environmental policies. It is argued that because society faces basic uncertainty in predicting environmental futures, it is time to formulate a fundamentally new risk philosophy, complementary interdisciplinary management approaches, and a more modern attitude towards efficient and renewable resource systems.
