This study of how institutions learn and how ecosystems respond uses a synthesis of social science and ecological theory to explain the frustrating resistance of institutions to change and the sudden, spasmodic lurches of learning that can occur. Six case studies - from the Everglades to the Baltic - are included to test an emerging theory of complex adaptive systems that forms the basis for explaining the interrelated dynamics of ecosystems, institutions and society.
