Expanding the development and use of socio-environmental system (SES) models is critical to solving urgent problems situated at the human-nature interface. Substantial progress is being made, but modeling challenges associated with a range of diverse issues remain. This is the fifth in a series of
Triangulating Ecological Variability, Pastoralist Livelihoods, and Knowledge Systems in Kenya
A wide range of social science research has shown how the expertise of pastoralists enables them to thrive in highly variable rangeland environments, often modifying their livelihood practices in complex
This talk reviews existing quantitative methods that predict how ecological communities will respond to the addition of species and demonstrate how these methods can be combined with a structured decision making framework in order to support conservation and management.
Nitrogen (N) is both necessary for life and potentially harmful to it, so the amount and distribution of N matters. While N is often viewed as a pollutant, there are reasons to expect that rising atmospheric CO2 and other global changes are rendering N less accessible to plants and microorganisms.

This webcast explores the present status and futures of creating socio-environmental scenarios, including the development and use of scenario analysis for exploring and understanding socio-environmental systems.
This talk will summarize methods used to address risk for contamination faced by gardeners in urban community gardens and provide detailed recommendations of how community researchers can collaboratively work with community members and resist oppressive systems of risk.

Expanding the development and use of socio-environmental system (SES)
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted global fisheries. Restaurant closures, transportation and border restrictions, and surging demand for non-perishable seafood products are examples of supply and demand shifts in the seafood industry. Fisheries workers have been economically affected by these
Providing adequate water supply to the growing number of urban residents will be a challenge faced by many utility managers throughout the remainder of this century. This challenge will be exacerbated by intensifying climate change that is likely to bring more frequent and intense droughts to some
This discussion will focus on the question of how sustainability students, researchers and practitioners can move towards a more just world through their praxis. In arguing for a process, rather than an object-oriented sustainability, Dr. Julie Sze (with others) suggests that we need to move and
The Northeast Shelf Regional Ecosystem (NSRE) is experiencing some of the highest rates of ocean temperature change in the world. High-resolution climate models have predicted future temperatures may be higher than originally estimated from lower resolution models. These changes in temperature will
Social science research in rangelands has increasingly shown how the expertise of pastoralists enables them to thrive in highly variable environments. This work has also shown how pastoralists are modifying their practices in complex ways in response to new social, political, economic, and
