Sustainability science demands that we define our terms across diverse disciplines
Landscape ecology is an essential part of sustainability science (Forman 1990; Wu 2006, 2010a, b; Naveh 2007; Musacchio 2009, 2011), but so are several other disciplines, some quite disparate. TheExpand

What Is the Worth of a Degree in Sustainability
If economics has been hampered by the label, “the dismal science,” then sustainability may be in the process of being pegged as “the problem science.” From climate change to global inequity,Expand
Whose values count: is a theory of social choice for sustainability science possible?
If sustainability science is to mature as a discipline, it will be important for practitioners to discuss and eventually agree upon the fundamentals of the paradigm on which the new discipline isExpand
Sustainable landscapes and landscape sustainability: A tale of two concepts
Abstract Landscape scientists have increasingly studied sustainability during the past three decades, with a plurality of perspectives and methods. However, a comprehensive review of the relevantExpand
Sustainability science: building a new discipline
In scientific and academic circles worldwide, the opportunity to develop the emerging discipline of sustainability science has never been greater. This new science has its origins in the concept ofExpand
Sustainability Science: A Paradigm in Crisis?

A core sustainability science research program has begun to take shape that transcends the concerns of its foundational disciplines and focuses instead on understanding the complex dynamics that arise from interactions between human and environmental systems. Expand


Linking global and local scales: designing dynamic assessment and management processes
This paper identi"es challenges inherent in addressing multi-scale environmental problems, and outlines tentative guidelines for addressing such challenges and linking science and policy acrossExpand
The concept of scale and the human dimensions of global change: a survey
Abstract Issues related to the scale of ecological phenomena are of fundamental importance to their study. The causes and consequences of environmental change can, of course, be measured at differentExpand
Barriers and bridges to the renewal of ecosystems and institutions
This volume uses a series of case studies to test an emerging theory of complex adaptive systems that forms the basis for explaining the interrelated dynamics of ecosystems, institutions and society.Expand
Modeling Technological Change: Implications for the Global Environment
