Novel Ecosystems. Intervening in the New Ecological World Order

Land conversion, climate change and species invasions are contributing to the widespread emergence of novel ecosystems, which demand a shift in how we think about traditional approaches to conservation, restoration and environmental management. They are novel because they exist without historical precedents and are self-sustaining. Traditional approaches emphasizing native species and historical continuity are challenged by novel ecosystems that deliver critical ecosystems services or are simply immune to practical restorative efforts. Some fear that, by raising the issue of novel ecosystems, we are simply paving the way for a more laissez-faire attitude to conservation and restoration. Regardless of the range of views and perceptions about novel ecosystems, their existence is becoming ever more obvious and prevalent in today’s rapidly changing world. In this first comprehensive volume to look at the ecological, social, cultural, ethical and policy dimensions of novel ecosystems, the authors argue these altered systems are overdue for careful analysis and that we need to figure out how to intervene in them responsibly. This book brings together researchers from a range of disciplines together with practitioners and policy makers to explore the questions surrounding novel ecosystems. It includes chapters on key concepts and methodologies for deciding when and how to intervene in systems, as well as a rich collection of case studies and perspective pieces. It will be a valuable resource for researchers, managers and policy makers interested in the question of how humanity manages and restores ecosystems in a rapidly changing world.

Carol Hall

Carol Hall is an American composer and lyricist, born in Abilene, Texas.

Hall is best known for composing the music and lyrics for the Broadway stage musical "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" (1978, adapted as a film in 1982). Her other major works include the unsuccessful Broadway sequel thereto, "The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public" (1994), as well as the stage play "To Whom It May Concern" (1986?).

Besides songwriting, Hall's background includes singing in clubs and similar venues, as attested by Larry L. King, her collaborator for both of the "Whorehouse" plays. A noticeable result of this aspect of her career was the release of a solo album on Elektra Records in March 1972 entitled "Beads and Feathers" (Elektra EKS 75018).

Carol Hall appeared also on the album "Free to Be… You and Me" (1972) and the like-named television special from 1974, having written the songs "Parents Are People," "It's All Right To Cry," and "Glad To Have A Friend Like You."

For the 1977 duet album of Tony Bennett and Bill Evans, entitled "Together Again", Hall co-wrote the number "The Two Lonely People."

For "Sesame Street", Hall along with Sam Pottle co-wrote the song "A Very Simple Dance" (1974).

More recently, Hall recorded the final (extra) track on the 2001 revival recording of "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas", highlighting the newly added song "A Friend to Me," written for Ann-Margret to use in the show. She is also the composer and lyricist for Theatreworks/USA's production of "Max & Ruby"
