Felipe-Lucia, M.R., Guerrero, A. M., Alexander, S.M., et.al. 2021. Conceptualizing ecosystem services using social–ecological networks. Trends in Ecology & Evolution, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tree.2021.11.012.
Social–ecological networks (SENs) provide a promising approach to represent the complex ecological, social, and social–ecological relationships that influence ecosystems service supply. Ecosystem services can be represented in SENs as nodes, links, attributes, or as emergent properties of the network, each bringing distinct aspects of ecosystem services into focus to address different questions. Applications of SENs in ecosy...
Guerrero, A.M., Jones, N.A., Ross, H., Virah-Sawmy, M. and Biggs, D., 2021. What influences and inhibits reduction of deforestation in the soy supply chain? A mental model perspective. Environmental Science & Policy, 115, pp.125-132.
Multiple sustainability initiatives have emerged in response to the environmental impacts of soy production, especially deforestation and climate change. But company commitments to reduce deforestation in their supply chains are not leading to outcomes on the ground. Achieving concerted action by supply chain actors requires consideration of their diverse perspectives. We investigate the mental models of Producer Associations...

Guerrero, A.M., Barnes, M., Bodin, Ö., Chadès, I., Davis, K.J., Iftekhar, M.S., Morgans, C. and Wilson, K.A., 2020. Key considerations and challenges in the application of social‐network research for environmental decision making. Conservation Biology, 34(3), pp.733-742.
Attempts to better understand the social context in which conservation and environmental decisions are made has led to increased interest in human social networks. To improve the use of social‐network analysis in conservation, we reviewed recent studies in the literature in which such methods were applied. In our review, we looked for problems in research design and analysis that limit the utility of network analysis. Nineteen...
Friedman, R.S., Guerrero, A.M., McAllister, R.R., Rhodes, J.R., Santika, T., Budiharta, S., Indrawan, T., Hutabarat, J.A., Kusworo, A., Yogaswara, H. and Meijaard, E., 2020. Beyond the community in participatory forest management: A governance network perspective. Land Use Policy, 97, p.104738.
Governance of the environment and natural resources involves interests of multiple stakeholders at different scales. In community-based forest management, organisations outside of communities play important roles in achieving multiple social and ecological objectives. How and when these organisations play a role in the community-based forest management process remains a key question. We applied social network analysis to a ca...
Barnes, M.L., Wang, P., Cinner, J.E., Graham, N.A., Guerrero, A.M., Jasny, L., Lau, J., Sutcliffe, S.R. and Zamborain-Mason, J., 2020. Social determinants of adaptive and transformative responses to climate change. Nature Climate Change, pp.1-6.
To cope effectively with the impacts of climate change, people will need to change existing practices or behaviours within existing social–ecological systems (adaptation) or enact more fundamental changes that can alter dominant social–ecological relationships and create new systems or futures (transformation). Here we use multilevel network modelling to examine how different domains of adaptive capacity—assets, flexibility, o...
Rhodes, J.R., Guerrero, A.M., Bodin, Ö., Chades, I. 2020. Fundamental insights on when social network data are most critical for conservation planning. Conservation Biology, Volume 34, Issue 6, December 2020, Pages 1463-1472, https://doi.org/10.1111/cobi.13500
As declines in biodiversity accelerate, there is an urgent imperative to ensure that every dollar spent on conservation counts toward species protection. Systematic conservation planning is a widely used approach to achieve this, but there is growing concern that it must better integrate the human social dimensions of conservation to be effective. Yet, fundamental insights about when social data are most critical to inform con...
