This paper begins by summarising some of the key debates around differing understandings and uses of the term resilience, and then focusing on socioecological resilience, uses an empirical case study of Bardia National Park in Nepal to demonstrate how a resilience approach can be a useful tool in understanding key interactions between social and ecological systems that impact on the management of protected areas.
