Responding to Ecosystem Transformation: Resist, Accept, or Direct?

We present a framework that encompasses three strategies for fish and wildlife managers dealing with ecosystems vulnerable to transformation. Specifically, managers can resist change and strive to maintain existing ecosystem composition, structure, and function; accept transformation when it is not feasible to resist change or when changes are deemed socially acceptable; or direct change to a future ecosystem configuration that would yield desirable outcomes.

The Glasgow Climate Talks at COP26 are a historic opportunity for the world to act on climate. When the Paris Agreement was signed five years ago, every nation on earth agreed to meet five years later and “ratchet up” their climate ambition.

We aim to coordinate 500 actions on our targets by the start of the Glasgow climate talks on November 1st. Learn more about the Deadline Glasgow campaign here: tinyurl.com/defundff
