Ecología | David Estrada Santana –

Retrieved from ” https: For Odum, as a large entity, the world constituted a revolving cycle with high stability. Odum viewed humans as playing a central role: His dissertation was titled The Biogeochemistry of Strontium: Howard Thomas studied biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hillwhere he published his first paper while still an undergraduate.

They named their experimental station the “H. The difference between input and output, under steady state conditions, was a measure of the metabolism of the whole system.

Odum used an analog of electrical energy networks to model the energy flow pathways of ecosystems. It is a useful first step before quantitative or simulation studies. Odum said that “when a group gathers around a table to talk about analyzing the main components of a new system or problem, one person can diagram for the group, enhancing the coherence of the discussion.

In this model energy and matter flows through oeum ecosystem: This was described variously as the “maximum power principle” Odum”maximum power theory” Gilliland”maximum power efficiency” Costanzap. Research, Past and Present, with Bruno D.

With Discussion on the Ecological Integration of Elements.


Higher organisms like fish are diodes. Ecological engineering, he wrote, is “those cases where the energy supplied by man is small relative to the natural sources but sufficient to produce large effects in the resulting patterns and odm. A group, collective-thinking exercise stimulates memories and draws out qualitative and pibro knowledge from combined experiences with the real-world system of concern. He was one of the first to discuss the use of ecosystems for life-support function in space travel.

Ecosystem ecology and Systems ecology.

The term ecological engineering was first coined by Howard T. Odum pioneered a method of studying system dynamics by measuring the chemistry of the input and output water. Odum was measuring the community as a system, not adding up the metabolism of the components as Lindeman and many others had done”.

Howard T. Odum

Lotka ecokogia articles on the energetics of evolution, and subsequently proposed the theory that natural systems tend to operate at an efficiency that produces the maximum power output, not the maximum efficiency. As soon as it does the system fits the definition of an entity. It seems clear that for Odum the concept that a battery or more explicitly the solar electricity generator he sometimes used pushed electrons around a copper circuit in almost exactly the same way that the sun pushed energy lihro reduced carbon around the invisible circuits of an ecosystem.

Odum looked at natural systems as having been formed by the use of various forms of energy in the past: In a controversial move, Odum, together with Richard Pinkerton at the time physicist at the University of Floridawas motivated by Alfred J.

However this principle has only been demonstrated in a few experiments [38] and is not widely recognized in the scientific community. Nonetheless, they were able to estimate the total flow of energy through the entire system.


Línea del tiempo de la Ecología. by Andres Guerrero on Prezi

By the end of the s Odum’s electronic circuit ecological simulation models were replaced by a more general set of energy symbols. Howard learned his early scientific lessons about birds from his brother, about fish and the philosophy of biology while working after school for the marine zoologist Robert Coker, and about electrical circuits from The Boy Electrician by Alfred Powell Morgan.

This, according to Odum, necessitated a fundamental change in the way ecologists thought about predator-prey relationships. It was the presence of stability which, Odum libto, enabled him to talk about the teleology of such libo.

In his Ph. Odum was published in honor of his work.

A more general statement is that “a system which has stability with time will exist longer than a system without stability”. Odum in ; she had four children from her previous marriage. Odum was a pioneer in his use of small closed and open ecosystems in classroom teaching. Systems theory in anthropology Systems theory in archaeology Systems theory in political science. Ecological economics is now an active field between economics and ecology with oxum conferences, international societies and an international journal.
