Comparing Cultural to Natural Disturbance Patterns

This research project from the Healthy Landscapes Program measures the differences between natural and industrial disturbance patterns.

How do industrial disturbance patterns differ from those of Mother Nature? As ecosystems shift further away from their natural range they lose ecological memory & are less resilient and less sustainable.
