Emergent patterns in nature and society

Bivalves collapse | Video of Chesapeake Bay case

I’ve been updating the regime shifts database lately. Today, One of the cases I’m reviewing is the one of oysters collapse. I found this nice animation by NOAA about one of the iconic cases: Chesapeake Bay. It nicely describe the role of anthropogenic drivers and ecological processes behind the regime shift. A good resource to teach about regime shifts if you’re interested.
