The climate change stage of change measure: vehicle choice experiment
Various measures have been proposed and validated to assess environmental motivation and explain peoples’ consumer behavior. However, most of the measures are rather complex, sometimes comprising
Social Ecological Dynamics of Catchment Resilience
It is proposed that analysis of catchments as social ecological systems can provide key insights into how social and ecological dynamics interact and how some of the negative consequences of unsustainable resource use or environmental degradation can be ameliorated.
Multisystemic Resilience An Emerging Perspective From Social- Ecological Systems
This volume presents remarkably rich and diverse scholarship on different perspectives on multisystemic resilience. Multisystemic resilience spans a wide range of fields, working in different domains

Human influence on climate in the 2014 southern England winter floods and their impacts
A succession of storms reaching southern England in the winter of 2013/2014 caused severe floods and £451 million insured losses. In a large ensemble of climate model simulations, we find that, as
Moral reasoning in adaptation to climate change
ABSTRACT Moral foundations theory argues that moral reasoning is widely observed and fundamental to the legitimacy of relevant governance and policy interventions. A new analytical framework to
Climate models predict increasing temperature variability in poor countries
It is shown that climate models consistently project increases in temperature variability in tropical countries over the coming decades, with the Amazon as a particular hotspot of concern.
Global warming transforms coral reef assemblages
This study bridges the gap between the theory and practice of assessing the risk of ecosystem collapse, under the emerging framework for the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Ecosystems, by rigorously defining both the initial and collapsed states, identifying the major driver of change, and establishing quantitative collapse thresholds.
Making space for proactive adaptation of rapidly changing coasts: a windows of opportunity approach
Coastlines are very often places where the impacts of global change are felt most keenly, and they are also often sites of high values and intense use for industry, human habitation, nature
