Linking Social and Ecological Systems: Management Practices and Social Mechanisms for Building Resilience Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While scientists usually examine either ecological systems or social systems, the need exists for an interdisciplinary approach to the problems of environmental management and sustainable development. Developed under the auspices of the Beijer Institute in Stockholm, this volume analyzes social and ecological linkages in selected ecosystems using an international and interdisciplinary case study approach. The chapters provide detailed information on a variety of management practices for dealing with environmental change. Taken as a whole, the book contributes to the greater understanding of essential social responses to changes in ecosystems. A key feature is a set of new, or rediscovered, principles for sustainable ecosystem management.

Synopsis:

Investigates how management systems and their dynamics can improve stewardship of selected ecosystems.
