Final OpenNESS Annual Meeting in Smolenice, Slovakia

Ecological Threshold

A point at which an ecological system experiences a qualitative change, mostly in an abrupt and discontinuous way. In the context of OpenNESS we use ecological threshold and tipping points as synonyms. See also ‘regime shift’ and the distinction with ‘limit’.
