In two recent articles, Bohan et al. and Dee et al. develop conceptual arguments for the benefits of applying an interdisciplinary social–ecological network approach to the study of human–nature systems in general, and ecosystem services in particular. We agree. Network approaches can account for the interdependencies between complex human and ecological dynamics that underpin many important environmental problems. As such, their use has been advocated by several others as a fruitful way to bridge across the natural and social sciences in the development of new theories, frameworks, and tools for environmental problem-solving.
