Short summary
The state of “ecosystem” ecology before 1970 is discussed briefly with emphasis on development of a new paradigm – systems ecology. The philosophy and theory embedded in ecosystem science, the methodologies introduced for conducting research, and the development of a vast warehouse of knowledge as they developed after 1970 are explored. The discussion ends with the contributions of the new paradigm to current and future local- to global-scale environmental and societal problems and solutions.
