Title:Types of Response of Disturbance Impact to Increasing Distrubance Size
Identifier:nceas.937
Abstract:
This table is part of the Ecosystems publication: Romme, William H.; Everham, Edwin H.; Frelich, Lee E.; Moritz, Max A.; Sparks, Richard E.1998. Are large, infrequent disturbances qualitatively different from small, frequent disturbances?. Ecosystems. Vol: 1(6). Pages 524-534. Table 1 contains Types of Response of Disturbance Impact to Increasing Disturbance "Size" (Extent, Intensity, Duration or Frequency). The table values are System and Disturbance Type, Parameter of Disturbance Size, Parameter of Disturbance Impact, Type of Response and Mechanism(s) Controlling Response
Keywords:None:
  • disturbance size
  • disturbance impact
  • thresholds
  • extreme ecological events
  • fire
  • fire in boreal forests
  • fire in temperate forest
  • floods

Conceptual Framework

This group developed a general conceptual framework for examining ecosystem-disturbance dynamics and for exploring the question whether large infrequent disturbances are qualitatively different from small, frequent disturbances. For more details please see the publication.
