Understanding Social Responses to Environmental Shocks: A Text Mining Approach
"Graduate Leaders in Socio-Environmental Synthesis Workshop"
This is a new training opportunity open to master's and doctoral students from the social, natural, and computational sciences. The workshop is designed as a highly interactive experience that grounds key S-E synthesis concepts and skills in the context of students’ own research.
"Social-Ecological Drivers of Change Over Time in Urban Woodlands"
Remnant and regenerating forest patches are hotspots of biodiversity and ecosystem services in urban regions. Social uses and benefits, abrupt forest edges, introduced and invasive species, and urban climate warming combine to create novel ecological conditions and management challenges in urban woodlands. An array of public, private, and non-profit organizations engage in management and stewardship of these urban woodland patches.

The goal of this three-day short course, held May 13–15, 2020, is to introduce quantitative scientists interested in socio-environmental synthesis to Shiny/R as a way of shrinking the gap between information generation in science and policy making or public outreach through the creation of web-based tools.
