Scientists Pioneer Method to Predict #EnvironmentalCollapse

Scientists Pioneer Method to Predict #EnvironmentalCollapse | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it
Scientists at the University of Southampton are pioneering a technique to predict when an ecosystem is likely to collapse, which may also have potential for foretelling crises in agriculture, fisheries or even social systems.

November 19, 2012 - Science Newsline - Nature and Earth

The researchers have applied a mathematical model to a real world situation, the environmental collapse of a lake in China, to help prove a theory which suggests an ecosystem 'flickers', or fluctuates dramatically between healthy and unhealthy states, shortly before its eventual collapse....  http://www.sciencenewsline.com/articles/2012111915410014.html

About 226,000 marine species have been identified and described so far. These are but a small portion of the total: researchers estimate that the ocean may be home to 700,000 marine species....
