como el PIB (Zhao et ál. 2008). Conclusiones Cuando se habla de capacidad de carga se debe poner especial aten‑ ción a la compleja dinámica de las sociedades y de los sistemas ecoló‑ gicos, a las interacciones globales y a los vacíos de conocimiento sobre el capital natural y el humano. La mayoría de las teorías de capacidad de carga tienen un enfoque unidi‑ reccional, aunque las sociedades y los demás sistemas que ocurren en un territorio son multidireccionales. Por lo tanto, si enfocamos la capa‑ cidad de carga en un solo elemento del territorio –ya sea su capacidad de producción de alimento, o la tasa de crecimiento de la población seguimos minimizando el concepto y perdiendo el poder de explicación del mismo. Es por ello que la con‑ ceptualización de la capacidad de carga debe ser más amplia para que por medio del modelaje se convierta en una herramienta de gestión ade‑ cuada a las realidades humanas.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
