Hentati‐Sundberg, J., Olin, A.B., Evans, T.J., Isaksson, N., Berglund, P.A. and Olsson, O., 2020. A mechanistic framework to inform the spatial management of conflicting fisheries and top predators. Journal of Applied Ecology.
Conflicts of interest between resource extraction and conservation are widespread, and negotiating such conflicts, or trade‐offs, is a key issue for ecosystem managers. One such trade‐off is resource competition between fisheries and marine top predators. Managing this trade‐off has so far been difficult due to a lack of knowledge regarding the amount and distribution of prey required by top predators. Here, we develop a fram...
Burgos-Ayala, A., Jiménez-Aceituno, A., Torres-Torres, A.M., Rozas-Vásquez, D. and Lam, D.P., 2020. Indigenous and local knowledge in environmental management for human-nature connectedness: a leverage points perspective. Ecosystems and People, 16(1), pp.290-303.
Indigenous peoples are key actors for environmental management because they hold valuable indigenous and local knowledge (ILK) for the sustainable stewardship of nature. However, the consideration of ILK in environmental management is still limited. We explore how environmental government institutions in Colombia have involved indigenous communities in 2212 environmental management projects between 2004 and 2015. Only 1% of t...
Delabre, I., Boyd, E., Brockhaus, M., Carton, W., Krause, T., Newell, P., Wong, G.Y. and Zelli, F., 2020. Unearthing the myths of global sustainable forest governance. Global Sustainability, 3.
Despite efforts to address the global forest crisis, deforestation and degradation continue, so we need to urgently revisit possible solutions. A failure to halt the global forest crisis contributes to climate change and biodiversity loss and will continue to result in inequalities in access to, and benefits from, forest resources. In this paper, we unpack a series of powerful myths about forests and their management. By expo...
Verhagen, H., Borit, M., Bravo, G. and Wijermans, N., 2020. Advances in Social Simulation.
Since the first larger scale conferences in the early 1990s, social simulation has rapidly evolved into becoming a methodology known by researchers and practitioners in different areas including sociology, political science, economics, history, and ecology, to name a few. Each of these disciplines has to address what sociologists call the micro-macro link – how individual decision-making entities interact to produce effects at...
Colding, J., Giusti, M., Haga, A., Wallhagen, M. and Barthel, S., 2020. Enabling Relationships with Nature in Cities. Sustainability, 12(11), p.4394.
Limited exposure to direct nature experiences is a worrying sign of urbanization, particularly for children. Experiencing nature during childhood shapes aspects of a personal relationship with nature, crucial for sustainable decision-making processes in adulthood. Scholars often stress the need to ‘reconnect’ urban dwellers with nature; however, few elaborate on how this can be achieved. Here, we argue that nature reconnectio...
Klose, A.K., Karle, V., Winkelmann, R. and Donges, J.F., 2020. Emergence of cascading dynamics in interacting tipping elements of ecology and climate. Royal Society open science, 7(6), p.200599.
In ecology, climate and other fields, (sub)systems have been identified that can transition into a qualitatively different state when a critical threshold or tipping point in a driving process is crossed. An understanding of those tipping elements is of great interest given the increasing influence of humans on the biophysical Earth system. Complex interactions exist between tipping elements, e.g. physical mechanisms connect s...
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...
Kornhuber, K., Coumou, D., Vogel, E., Lesk, C., Donges, J.F., Lehmann, J. and Horton, R.M., 2020. Amplified Rossby waves enhance risk of concurrent heatwaves in major breadbasket regions. Nature Climate Change, 10(1), pp.48-53.
In an interconnected world, simultaneous extreme weather events in distant regions could potentially impose high-end risks for societies. In the mid-latitudes, circumglobal Rossby waves are associated with a strongly meandering jet stream and might cause simultaneous heatwaves and floods across the northern hemisphere. For example, in the summer of 2018, several heat and rainfall extremes occurred near-simultaneously. Here we...
Rocha, J., Mazzeo, N., Piaggio, M. and Carriquiry, M., 2020. Seeking sustainable pathways for land use in Latin America. Ecology and Society, 25(3).
Achieving sustainable development goals in Latin America, and doing resilience research for that matter, has its own challenges. The Global South is faced with different types of problems, and therefore solutions, in achieving global sustainability ambitions (Nagendra 2018, Nagendra et al. 2018). Although each country has its own particularities, the region shares a recent colonial past that focused on natural resource extract...
Harker-Schuch, I., Lade, S., Mills, F. and Colvin, R., 2020. Opinions of 12 to 13-year-olds in Austria and Australia on the concern, cause and imminence of climate change. Ambio, pp.1-17.
Early adolescence (12–13 years old) is a critical but under-researched demographic for the formation of attitudes related to climate change. We address this important area by exploring adolescent views about climate change. This paper presents opinions collected from surveys of 463 1st-year secondary school students (12–13 years old) in public secondary schools in inner-urban centres in Austria and Australia on whether climate...
