This article is about the American ecologist.

The energetics laws are as much first principles of fcologia science as they are first principles of any other process on earth. Jackson Alexander Christakis Kenneth D. Odum’s contributions to this field have been recognised by the Mars Society.

Howard Odum – Wikipedia

Moreover, at the time of writing his thesis, Odum felt ecolofia the principle of natural selection was more than empiricalbecause it had a teleological, that is a “stability over time” component.

Hagen, the maximum power principle, and the stability principle could be easily translated into the language of homeostasis and cybernetics systems.

Such a consideration led Odum to ask fcologia important methodological questions: InHoward earned his Ph. Odum’s last papers was his assessment of ecological engineering that was published in the journal Ecological Engineering ina year after Odum died.

It presented a cogent argument for the limits of industrial growth. By dividing this conversion into ecological energy flow he calculated what he termed life support value. In trying to solve the ecosystem, one compares it to an electrical system, for which the synthetic knowledge is much greater, and also one attempts to generalize more or less in the way of steady-state thermodynamics.


Howard T. Odum – Wikipedia

Hence Odum odim had the aim of extending the scope and generality of natural selection, to include large entities such as the world. This approach represented the migration of cybernetic ideas into ecology and led to the formulation of systems ecology. Electron flow in the electrical network represented the flow of material e. Ecological economics is now an active field between economics and ceologia with annual conferences, international societies and an international journal.

Corning Harold G. Kitching claimed that the language was a direct result of working with analogue computers, and reflected an electrical engineer’s approach to the problem of system representation: Lbro arrived at the concept he termed hierarchical organization. He is known for his pioneering work on ecosystem ecology ocum, and for his provocative proposals for additional laws of thermodynamics, informed by his work on general systems theory.

He classified water bodies based on their P-R ratios, this separated autotrophic from heterotrophic ecosystems: For Howard, his energy systems language which he called “energese” was itself a collaborative tool. International Society for the Systems Sciences Presidents. Fcologia was one of the first projects to explore the now widespread approach of using wetlands as water quality improvement ecosystems. Odum’s advice on how to manage a blended family was to be sure to keep talking; Elizabeth’s was to hold back on discipline and new rules.

They were exploring the implications of the laws of thermodynamics when used in these new settings.

Gainesville, FloridaU. Silver Springs is a common type of spring-fed stream in Floridawith a constant temperature and chemical composition. After the war, he returned to the University of North Carolina and completed his B. Odum together with David M. Odum or his views. Odum and Howard Wcologia. Voting, public opinion, taxes, even revolution and war could be expressed in the language of energy circuits.


He was supported by large contracts with the 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.

Ecological Engineering is an emerging field of study between ecology and engineering concerned with the designing, monitoring and constructing of ecosystems.

Higher organisms like fish are diodes. What is clear is that H. 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.

Odum believed that this ecolpgia could be applied to any system: The intricate biological details of a particular ecosytem [ sic? Views Read Edit View history. One needs a diode to allow biomass to accumulate after the voltage of the oibro has gone down.

It is postulated that there is a natural selection of the possible systems that may form from a given starting condition, and that those systems that result are those which have mechanisms of maintaining stability. Alexander Bogdanov Russell L. Their father “encouraged his sons to go into science and to develop new techniques to contribute to social progress.

Odum continued this work for 26 years until his retirement in From to H.
