A Natural Resource-Systems approach: Targeting the Ecological Transition at the Regional Scale

Abstract : Human history can be mirrored in a geo-history of natural resources. Humans, by over-exploiting resources (“forcing”), have produced extensive land use changes and have altered complex food webs, ecosystems, and habitats with as a consequence systematic natural biocapacity erosion, biodiversity loss, energy crises, pollution, climate deregulation. In other terms, a global resources “rush” has led to chronic socio-ecosystemic deficits, thus creating the conditions for local and global state shifts within the biosphere and / or society. Therefore, research must serve to increase human understanding of those resources and how best to use them for the public good.
