How Can I Tell if Community Dynamics Are Impaired (and What Can Fix Them?)

In “How to Keep Community Dynamics Healthy on the Ranch,” Noble consultant Will Moseley describes how the health and resilience of natural ecosystems are, in part, a result of diverse plants, soils, animals and disturbances. In regenerative ranching, we try to mimic natural ecosystems so that our soils, plants, animals and businesses are healthy and resilient as well.

How Can I Tell if the Energy Flow is Broken (And How Can I Fix it)?

In nature and in regenerative ranching, there are four ecosystem processes at work – the energy flow, water cycle, nutrient cycle and community dynamics. In an effective ecosystem, all four ecosystem processes are simultaneously highly functional. If any one of the four is disrupted or impaired in any way, the ecosystem itself is not highly functional.
