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

al rainfall, streamflow and drought--as well as the capacity of water users in glacier-irrigated agricultural systems--affect human populations. The scientists will focus on semi-arid agricultural systems that are dependent on snowmelt in contrasting settings in eastern Kenya and the Western United States.

Global Sensitivity and Uncertainty Analysis in the Evaluation of Social-Ecological Resilience: Theoretical Debates Over Infrastructure Impacts on Livelihoods and Forest Change
Stephen Perz, University of Florida

Scientists will use a systems approach that features resilience as a concept to bring together economic, ecological and social science perspectives to better understand infrastructure impacts. They will study the Southwestern Amazon, a region with high biodiversity and in which highway-paving is underway.

A Global Sustainable Soundscape Network
Bryan Pijanowski, Purdue University

Scientists will organize a research coordination network on "soundscapes" to facilitate interaction among ecologists, cognitive psychologists and scholars in the humanities, as well as those from other fields, to explore perspectives on human and natural system interactions. Soundscapes, the cacophony of sounds in the environment, play important roles in ecosystems.

Diversification, Portfolio Effects, and the Sustainability of Fishing Communities
Daniel Schindler, University of Washington

Researchers will investigate how the biocomplexity of fisheries ecosystems translates into social and economic attributes in the human communities that exploit these ecosystems. The scientistsn will examine salmon ecosystems and the social and economic benefits to people who rely on salmon for their livelihoods in Western Alaska.
