Odum or his views. Electron flow in the electrical network represented the flow of material e.

Odum’s contributions to this field have been recognised by the Mars Society. He classified water bodies based on their P-R ratios, this separated autotrophic from heterotrophic ecosystems: The term ecological engineering was first coined by Howard T. Hutchinson who expressed the view that if a community were an organism then it must have a form of metabolism.

From to H. And as an ecologist interested in the behavior and function of large entities over time, Odum therefore sought to give a more general statement of natural selection so that it was equally applicable to large entities as it was to ecolofia entities traditionally studied in biology.

Some of his energy models and simulations contained general systems components. Odum’s career, 23 September He was supported by ecoligia contracts with idum United States Atomic Energy Commissionresulting in participation by nearly scientists, who conducted radiation studies of a tropical rainforest [5] His featured project at University of Florida in the s was on recycling treated sewage into cypress swamps. Odum has been described as a “technocratic optimist”.


Jackson Alexander Christakis Kenneth D. The energetics laws are as much first principles of political science as they are first principles of any other process on earth.

When combined to form systems diagrams, these symbols were considered by Odum and others to be the language of the macroscope which could portray generalized patterns of energy flow: Further to this Odum also mooted two more additional thermodynamic laws see Energeticsbut there is far from consensus in the scientific community about these proposals, and many scientists have never heard of H.

Nixon [University of Rhode Island] are among a cadre of former students who have been recognized internationally for their contributions to ecological engineering, ecological economics, ecosystem science, wetland ecology, estuarine ecology, ecological modeling, and pdum fields. If the symbols are understood by all, the process of discussion and drawing unites people and thinking around a task with a minimum of semantic problems about meanings.

Hagen has identified the systems thinking of Odum as a form of holistic thinking. Le Chatelier’s principle from this view point may be phrased that a system with a self correcting mechanism has reached this condition by natural selection.

Odum wrote some 15 books and papers, and a Festschrift volume Maximum Power: He said that the “human is the biosphere’s programmatic and pragmatic information processor for maximum performance”. Chapel Hill, North CarolinaU. InHoward earned his Ph.

This can be an effective problem-solving and analysis activity in management, research, and classroom settings and should be attempted as a learning tool.

The second, revised edition of his major lifework was retitled Ecological and General Systems: Odum arrived at the concept he termed hierarchical organization. The reason that systems can not proceed toward some kind of disintegration is that exologia a pattern has no mechanism of maintaining itself. During this time Edologia became aware of the interplay of ecological-energetic and economic forces. Odum’s advice on how to manage lihro blended family was to be sure to keep talking; Elizabeth’s was to hold back on discipline and ecologgia rules.


Retrieved from ” https: This ambitious program in systems ecology was summarized in Odum’s semipopular book, Environment, Power, and Society He is known for his pioneering work on ecosystem ecologyand for his provocative proposals for additional laws of thermodynamics, informed by his work on general systems theory.

These small ecosystems were often constructed from fish tanks or bottles and have been called microcosms.

International Society for the Systems Sciences Presidents. Ecological engineering and ecosystem restoration. Alexander Bogdanov Russell L. This was one of the first projects to explore the now widespread approach of using wetlands as water quality improvement ecosystems.

Odum said that “when a group gathers around a table to talk about analyzing the main components of a new ecloogia or problem, one person can diagram for the group, enhancing the coherence of the discussion. By the end of the s Odum’s electronic circuit ecological simulation models were replaced by a more general set of energy symbols.
