Resumen

JIMENEZ GARCIA, WILLIAMS GILBERTO. HABITAT AND VULNERABILITY, REFLECTIONS FROM THE CONCEPTUAL SIDE. Luna Azul [online]. 2013, n.37, pp.196-218. ISSN 1909-2474.

The efforts to generate clear and precise concepts about vulnerability and habitat have resulted in the simplification and loss of clarity of these concepts. Despite their importance to human life, they have lost support and have been reduced to "assumptions" that are used in common parlance and sometimes inappropriately. The main objective of this article is to reflect on vulnerability and habitat as holistic and integrated concepts. For this purpose a literature review of various scientific texts was carried out and some explanatory models to interpret it were proposed, concluding that these concepts must be understood through their interrelation in the social construction of territory.

Palabras clave : Habitat; vulnerability; vulnerability factors; complexity; systems; interrelations.
