AbstractWith the ongoing increase in global stresses, tolerance studies are becoming more important to eco-environmental science. Based on our citation analysis, mutual tolerance was defined as the capacity of any two biotic and abiotic/environmental systems within an ecosystem to maintain health or stability, while mutually allowing certain disturbances or stress from each other. This definition addresses both abiotic and biotic stresses, unlike the previous tolerances that only addressed either. Mutual tolerance ecology has been defined as the science that studies stress tolerance at a system scale, and particularly focuses on mutual tolerance between a biotic system and an abiotic/environmental system. The framework of mutual tolerance ecology involves three aspects: the features of mutual tolerance; the disciplines of mutual tolerance; and the implications of increasing mutual tolerance. We argue that the sustainable development of an ecosystem involves a process in which there is mutual tolerance between biotic and abiotic/environmental systems, and environmental health refers to the conditions that the biotic system can tolerate. Our perspectives should enhance the practice of these theoretical ideas, as mutual tolerance could be a key to sustainable development.
