It seems like there's been an explosion of interest in AM in the past few years. Although the original work by Buzz Holling and colleagues focused on really large projects, like the Florida Everglades and Glen Canyon dam. However, since the Department of Interior has made AM the default choice for implementing management, it is being considered for decisions at many different scales.
One neat intro is a series of webcasts put together by trainers at the Bureau of Land Managment. There are 3 seperate 2 hour webcasts, which have a presentation and panel format. They were originally webcast live, so the expert panel also fields questions from viewers. I particularly found the segment on the legal implications of Adaptive Management very interesting - and a little frightening!
