New understanding of how humans and the environment interact
Date:9/21/2011

p>"By bringing together researchers from a wide variety of academic fields," Ruth says, "the projects will provide valuable new insights into the ways in which we, our environment, and the natural resources we rely on for our survival act as one interconnected system."

"The diversity of topics in these awards shows the intellectual richness of the CNH program, and its relevance to NSF's investments in sustainability research and education," says Alan Tessier, CNH program director in BIO.

"The projects address key societal challenges in the management of 'ecosystem services' and in adaptation to climate change."

Water Quality and Environmental Health in Botswana: Coupled Dynamics in a Water-Scarce Environment
Kathleen Alexander, Virginia Polytechnic Institute

Researchers will evaluate links among human and other animal populations in the Chobe River region of Botswana using Escherichia coli as a model microorganism to track transmission of microbes among the river, wildlife, domestic animals and humans.

When Strengths Can Become Weaknesses: Emerging Vulnerabilities in Coupled Natural Human Systems under Globalization and Climate Change
John Martin Anderies, Arizona State University

Scientists will examine small-scale irrigation systems whose infrastructure plays a critical role in resource provision to look at how biophysical and social systems have interacted to cope with new vulnerabilities.

The Emergence of Adaptive Governance Arrangements for Tropical Forest Ecosystems
Krister Andersson, University of Colorado-Boulder

Scientists will study 56 community-managed tropical forest ecosystems in Bolivia and Uganda, with a special emphasis on the roles of local ecological knowledge, cultural values and beliefs and socioeconomic inequalities in individual and community decision-making about forest r
