An introduction to the study of management and conservation of coastal social-ecological systems
Associate Professor, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile
This course explores management and conservation of coastal resources through an integrated social-ecological system perspective. This perspective sees people as part of and not apart from ecosystems. In the current era of human-dominated ecosystems and a biosphere shaped by human actions from local to global scales, such a perspective is rapidly gaining ground worldwide in science, is given a strong priority among funding organizations, and is in demand in the science-policy-practice interface.
