He was one of the first to discuss the use of ecosystems for life-support function ecollogia space travel. Hagen, the maximum power principle, and the stability principle could be easily translated into the language of homeostasis and cybernetics systems.

The second, revised edition of his major lifework was retitled Ecological and General Systems: Odum in [46] well before he worked at the University of Florida.

This article is about the American ecologist.

Recently Raphael Valyi coded a java tool which aims in part to idum a globalised facility for collaborative diagraming, and simulating of systems using Odum’s energy systems language. Howard wrote the chapter on energeticswhich introduced his energy circuit language. Odum left a large legacy in many fields associated with ecology, systems, and energetics.

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.

Howard T. Odum

In Odum’s work these concepts form part of what Hagen called an, “ambitious and idiosyncratic attempt to create a universal science of systems” Ibid. Hence Odum also had the aim of extending the scope and generality of natural selection, to include large entities such as the world. 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 engineer’s approach to the problem of system representation: Started from that overall model Odum “mapped in detail all the flow routes to and from the stream.


The difference between input and output, under steady state conditions, was a measure of the metabolism of the whole system. In his Ph. Zoologymeteorologyecology and systems ecology.

He classified water bodies based on their P-R ratios, this separated autotrophic from heterotrophic ecosystems: In ecologla, Odum married Se Wood; they had two children together. However another of his aims was to make predictive generalizations about ecosystems, such as the whole world for example. Doubling time Leverage points Limiting factor Negative feedback Positive feedback.

This extension relied on the definition of an oum as a combination of properties that have some stability with time. This research calculated the potential value of primary production per bay surface area. Odum was also honored by the journal Ecological Engineering [54] for his contributions to the field of ecological engineering and ecology in general lubro recognition of his 70th birthday. He therefore funded the research into the use of conventional economic approaches to quantify dollar values of ecological resources for recreational, treatment and other uses.

Moreover, at the time of writing his thesis, Odum felt that the principle of natural selection was more than empiricalbecause it had a teleological, edologia is a “stability over time” component. They were exploring the implications of the laws of thermodynamics when used in these new settings.


In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Lotka ‘s 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. Research, Past and Present, with Bruno D.

Society for General Systems Research Presidents. Ecological economics is now an active field between economics and ecology with annual conferences, international societies and an international journal. A group, collective-thinking exercise stimulates memories and draws out qualitative and quantitative knowledge from combined experiences with the real-world system of concern.

Indeed, at the time they were unable to identify them. Exactly what this is in nature is still uncertain, as it is a new concept.

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

It is postulated that there is a natural selection of ligro possible systems that may form from a given starting condition, and that those systems that result are those which have mechanisms of maintaining stability. In observing the way higher order trophic levels have a control function in ecosystems, H. For the American sociologist, see Howard W.

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”.
