Ecological resilience is a measure of how well a system recovers
following a disturbance, and it has been defined in two different ways:
The ability of an ecosystem to return to its former state after
disturbance. This definition reflects the amount of change an ecosystem
can undergo and still recover. Another way this has been expressed is
‘the capacity of an ecosystem to absorb external shocks without a change
- - The rate of recovery of an ecosystem following a disturbance.
Many landscapes in regional, rural and remote Australia have been disturbed by development, agriculture and mining.
