Contents Notes
The challenge of human-environment interactions research -- Theories and concepts from the social sciences -- Theories and concepts from the biological sciences -- Spatially explicit approaches -- Multi-scale and multi-temporal analysis -- Biocomplexity in ecological systems -- Environmental decision making -- Towards sustainability science. "The past decade has witnessed a rapid growth in the development of research on the human dimensions of global environmental change. Environmental Social Science offers a synthesis of this new cross disciplinary enterprise, and provides a foundation for scholars and policy makers to address the urgent needs of these globally-scaled processes. With increasing evidence of climate change, loss of biodiversity, rapid deforestation in the tropics, and an impending crisis in availability of potable water, the book argues that environmental research demands a better understanding of the complexities of current human - environment interactions. In recommending a new collaborative approach that makes environmental theories and research methods accessible across the natural and social sciences, the book outlines a mutually beneficial research agenda for all concerned."--BOOK JACKET.
