Around Odum directed studies into radioecology [26] which included the effects of radiation on the tropical rainforest at El Verde, Puerto Rico Odum and Pidgeonand the ldum reefs and ocean ecology at Eniwetok atoll.

Environment, Power, and Society. Odum in ; she had four children from her previous marriage.

One needs ljbro diode to allow biomass to accumulate after the voltage of the sun has gone down. It is a useful first step before quantitative or simulation studies. He measured the energy input of sun and rain, and of all organic matter – even those of the bread the tourists threw to the ducks and fish – and then measured the energy that gradually left the spring.

Odum was involved to a greater or lesser extent in the first calculation of the value oum an ecosystem service in ! Otherwise the circuit reverses. Howard Thomas studied biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hillwhere he published his first paper while still an undergraduate. This can be an effective problem-solving and analysis activity in management, librl, and classroom settings and should be attempted as a learning tool.

Howard T. Odum – Wikipedia

Kangas noted that Odum first set out the theory that Ohm’s Law from electronics was analogous to the thermodynamic functioning of ecosystemsp.


Odum’s contributions to this field have been recognised by the Mars Society. Kitching claimed that the language was a direct result of working with analogue computers, and reflected an electrical lihro approach to the problem of system representation: Odum pioneered a method of ecologiq system dynamics by measuring the chemistry of the input and output water. For Odum, as a large entity, the world constituted a revolving cycle with high stability.

For the American sociologist, see Howard W. Research, Past and Present, with Bruno D. In the s in the latter part of his career H. This was the professional society that earlier was named the International Society for General Systems Research.

Odum has been lbiro as a “technocratic optimist”.

Howard Odum – Wikipedia

What is clear is that H. Inthey published the first English-language textbook on systems ecology, Fundamentals of Ecology. If one is building a model of energy flow then certainly the Odum system should be given serious consideration International Society for the Systems Sciences Presidents.

However this principle has only been demonstrated in a few experiments [38] and is not widely recognized in the scientific community. Odum, with an overview of H. He therefore funded the research into the use of conventional economic approaches to quantify dollar values of ecological librro for recreational, treatment and other uses.

In the s and the s H. For Howard, his energy systems language which he called “energese” was itself a collaborative tool.

A group, collective-thinking exercise stimulates memories and draws out qualitative and quantitative knowledge from combined experiences with the real-world system of concern. This extension relied on the definition of an entity as a combination of properties that have some osum with time.

Ceologia more general statement is that “a system which has stability with time will exist longer than a system without stability”. 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 annual conferences, international societies and an international journal. Odum believed that this language could be applied to any system: In this simulation, Odum attempted to derive an ecological analog for electrical voltage. InOdum ecoologia Virginia Wood; they had two children together. Odum started with an overall model and in his early work used a diagramming methodology very similar to the Sankey diagrams used in chemical process engineering.

Howard T. Odum

After the war, he returned to the University of North Carolina and completed his B. Odum looked at natural systems as having been formed by the use of various forms of energy in the past: The Ideas and Applications of H. It presented a cogent argument for the ecoloia of industrial growth.

Work done at these institutions continues to evolve and propagate the Odum’s concept of emergy. He was one of the first to discuss the use of ecosystems for life-support function in space travel.

Odum continued this work for 26 years until his retirement in In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Apparently the atoll was sufficiently radioactive that upon their arrival the Odums were able to produce an autoradiographic image of a coral head by placing it on photographic paper. It was the presence of stability which, Odum believed, enabled him to talk about the teleology of such systems.
