3_1_Emergent Properties (Vulnerability and resilience)

This chapter addresses the cluster of emergent properties of coupled human environment systems that have been characterized as 'vulnerability' and 'resilience'. It also touches on the relation to these central themes of adaptiveness, threshold effects, etc. What it does not do, but should in its final form, is address additional relevant emergent properties suggested by a complex adaptive system perspective on HES.
