In the s and the s H. This was the professional society that earlier was named the International Society for General Systems Research. A more general statement is that “a system which has stability with time will exist ecoolgia than a system without stability”. Odum pioneered a method of studying system dynamics by measuring the chemistry of the input and output water.

One needs a diode to allow biomass to accumulate after the voltage of the sun has gone down. 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.

For example, when the Odums had studied the metabolism of the reef at Eniwetok Atoll, they were not concerned with individual species. Odum’s contributions to this field have been recognised by the Mars Society.

The unit of emergy past available energy use is the emjoule, as distinguished from joules used for available energy remaining now. Voting, public opinion, taxes, even revolution and war could be expressed in the language of energy circuits.

They were exploring the implications of the laws of thermodynamics when used in these new settings. 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. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. However the concept is neither free from controversy nor without its critics. Some consider the concept of “emergy”, sometimes briefly defined as “energy memory”, as one of Odum’s more significant contributions.


Research, Past and Present, with Bruno D. From to H. In this simulation, Odum attempted to derive an ecological analog for electrical voltage. It was the presence of stability which, Odum believed, enabled him to talk about the teleology of such systems. While at Yale, Howard began his lifelong collaborations with his brother Eugene. 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 the community metabolism is self-regulated”.

These small ecosystems were often constructed from fish tanks or bottles and have been called microcosms. The Ideas and Applications of H. Society for General Systems Research Presidents. Odum was also honored by the journal Ecological Engineering [54] for his contributions to the field of ecological engineering and ecology in general in recognition of his 70th birthday.

Circuit diagrams were skillfully used to illustrate the dependence of agricultural ecosystems and industrial societies upon fossil fuel subsidies Odum used simple electrical networks composed of batteries, wires, resistors and capacitors as models for ecological systems. In a controversial move, Odum, together with Richard Pinkerton at the time physicist at the University of Floridawas motivated by Alfred J. This ambitious program in systems ecology was summarized in Odum’s semipopular book, Environment, Power, and Society For Odum, as a large entity, the world constituted a revolving cycle with high stability.

Odum or his views. This page was last edited on 16 Novemberat Odum left a large legacy in many fields associated with ecology, systems, and energetics.

The energetics laws are as much first principles of political science as they are oduk principles of any other process on earth. This was described variously as the “maximum power principle” Odum”maximum power theory” Gilliland”maximum power efficiency” Costanzap.


Howard T. Odum

Odum gave a novel definition of ecology as the study of large entities ecosystems at the “natural level of integration”. Ecllogia described his role as follows: He said that odmu “human is the biosphere’s programmatic and pragmatic information processor for maximum performance”. Odum was the third child of Howard W. What is clear is that H. A group, collective-thinking exercise stimulates memories doum draws out qualitative and quantitative knowledge from combined experiences with the real-world ecopogia of concern.

As soon as it does the system fits the definition of an entity. This approach represented the migration of cybernetic ideas into ecology and led to the formulation of systems ecology. Odum was measuring the community as a system, not adding up the metabolism of the components as Lindeman and many others had done”. Odum developed an analogue of Ohm’s Law which aimed to be a representation of energy flows through ecosystems.

This research calculated the potential value of primary production per bay surface area. Indeed, at the time they were unable to identify them.

Odum arrived at the concept he termed hierarchical organization.
