In this simulation, Odum attempted to derive an ecological analog for electrical voltage. Odum looked at natural systems as having been formed by the use of various forms of energy in the past: If the symbols are understood by all, the process of discussion and drawing unites people and thinking around a task with a minimum of semantic problems about meanings.

Concepts and methods in ecological engineering. Odum viewed humans as playing a central role: Nelson Michael C. He was one of the first to discuss the use of ecosystems for life-support function in space travel.

Had they started studying the reef from the bottom up, they might never have gotten around to studying its overall metabolism. He is known for his pioneering work on ecosystem ecologyand for his provocative proposals for additional laws of thermodynamics, informed by his work on general systems theory.

For Howard, his energy systems language which he called “energese” was itself a collaborative tool. In writing a history of the ecosystem concept, Golley noted that Odum tended to think in the form of analogies, and gave the example, “if the world is a heat engine, then This was described variously as the “maximum power principle” Odum”maximum power theory” Gilliland”maximum power efficiency” Costanzap.

InOdum married Virginia Wood; they had two children together.

After her death, he married Elizabeth C. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Much interesting ecological economics work grew from Odum’s life support calculations. Odum was a pioneer in his use of small closed and open ecosystems in classroom teaching. The difference between input and output, under steady state conditions, was a measure of the metabolism of the whole system.

Alexander Bogdanov Russell L. If this postulate is applied to all of nature, the resulting proposition is that nature is as a whole in a steady state or is in the most stable form ceologia and constitutes one big entity. Started from that overall model Odum “mapped in detail all the flow routes to and from the stream.

Howard wrote the chapter on energeticswhich introduced his energy circuit language. Odumwas an American ecologist. Ecoogia was the professional society that earlier was named the International Society for General Systems Research.

Howard T. Odum

Wiley-Interscience New York, N. International Society for the Systems Sciences Presidents. The second, revised edition of his major lifework was retitled Ecological and General Systems: He was supported by large contracts with the United States Atomic Energy Commissionresulting in participation by nearly scientists, who conducted radiation studies of a tropical rainforest [5] His featured project at University of Florida in the s was on recycling treated sewage into cypress swamps. However another of his aims was to make predictive generalizations about ecosystems, such as the whole world for example.

Odum was the third child of Howard W. He presented many papers on the topic at its annual conferences as well as edited the last published General Systems Yearbook. Odum in ; she had four children from her previous marriage. Kangas noted that Odum first set out the theory that Ohm’s Law from electronics was analogous to the thermodynamic functioning of ecosystemsp.

However the concept is neither free from controversy nor without its critics. Some of ecoolgia energy models and simulations contained general systems components. This is one of his most important contributions to the beginnings of the field of ecological engineering.

His general plan “was to characterize the chemostatic flow, to establish the qualitative and quantitative community structureto measure the production rates, and to study the mechanisms by which ecolpgia community metabolism is self-regulated”.

The analogous concept required is the biomass activity, that is, the thermodynamic thrust, which may be linear. Views Read Edit View history. This ambitious libor in systems ecology was summarized in Odum’s semipopular book, Environment, Power, and Society Odum was involved to a greater or lesser extent in the first calculation of the value of an ecosystem service in !

Indeed, at the time they were unable to identify them. Systems theory in anthropology Systems theory in archaeology Systems theory in political science. A group, collective-thinking exercise stimulates memories and draws out qualitative and quantitative knowledge from combined experiences with the real-world system of concern. Electron flow in the electrical network represented the flow of material e. Odum used an analog of electrical energy networks to model the energy flow pathways of ecosystems.

During this time Odum became aware of the interplay of ecological-energetic and economic forces.
