Publication summary: 

Management of social-ecological systems will become increasingly challenging in the Anthropocene. I posit six guiding principles for how to manage systems flexibly and effectively in the face of profound environmental change. Principles were developed based on case studies in Alaska where climate change is occurring more rapidly than at other latitudes.
