This chapter looks at the Ecological Network Approach as a form of resilience thinking. It presents two case studies, the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall UK. The chapter traces out how the application of the Ecological Network Approach was conditioned by the dilemmas faced by landscape managers. Exploring how the Ecological Network Approach was translated from a model to policy and then trialled in a localised management strategy tells us much about how resilience is achieved in practice. The chapter focuses on two of the most significant challenges. The first is dealing with uncertainty, both in the epistemic and stochastic sense. The second is dealing with ambiguity in the presence of two or more equally valid frames or interpretations about the system of concern. The chapter concludes by arguing that understanding the dilemmas and opportunities faced by land managers reveals much about the problems of governing for resilience.
