Abstract [en]

A regime shift is a large, persistent change in the structure and function of a system. In ecosystems, regime shifts substantially affect the flow of services that societies rely on; they often occur unexpectedly and are difficult or impossible to reverse. Understanding the mechanisms that lead to and sustain regime shifts and predicting regime shifts before they happen are major challenges for ecosystem managers concerned with long-term sustainable resource management.
