Our paper was published in Trends in Ecology and Evolution. We discuss the importance of considering novel elements and ecosystems in resilience-based management. Novelty is a double edged sword. Some novelty is critical for long-term ecosystem resilience, while novelty can also lead to undesirable outcomes, including a reduction of biodiversity and other ecosystem services. Identifying how we embrace or reject novelty in natural resource management is becoming increasingly important in an era of global change. CNR press release here.
