DescriptionThis bibliography focuses on the links between social system well-being and ecosystem health. It is intended for public land managers and scientists and students of social and natural sciences. Multidisciplinary science that addresses the interconnections between the social system and the ecosystem is presented. Some of the themes and strategies presented are policy and management processes, ecosystem management, conceptual approaches, sociocultural processes, ethics, economic perspectives and analysis, methods and indicators for assessment, and environment-human interactions. This bibliography identifies the contributions toward understanding the links between ecosystems and social systems made by historically disparate disciplines.
