About this book

Can the new science of complexity help solve the ecological crisis? Levin argues that our biosphere is the classic example of a complex adaptive system and discusses such question as: how much loss can an ecosystem bear before it starts to collapse? how resilient are these systems? do they in fact hover at the edge of chaos?
