The Collapse of the Ancient Maya: Interdisciplinary Research on Society and the Environment
Nicholas Brokaw, University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras

Researchers will examine the collapse of an ancient civilization, and the consequences of deforestation in the tropics by exploring interactions between the Maya and their environment. These interactions, it's believed, contributed to the collapse of the Maya civilization. The scientists will also assess the impact of ancient Maya land use, from the period 1,200 years ago to the present.

Land-Use Intensification and Protected-Area Vulnerability in Africa's Albertine Rift
Joel Hartter, University of New Hampshire

Scientists will study how and where land use has intensified over time around parks in the Albertine Rift of eastern Africa by quantifying the rate and extent of forest conversion around seven Ugandan parks. Through this information, the researchers will identify patterns of climate, land use and population change over the last decade.

Political Fragmentation in Local Governance and Water Resource Management
Jae Hong Kim, Kansas State University

Researchers will analyze land-use changes and shifts in water quantity and quality in the Interior Plains of the United States examining the influence of institutional settings on the effectiveness of water resource management, with special attention to political fragmentation in local governance.
