Environmental Social Science offers a new synthesis of environmental studies, defining the nature of human-environment interactions and providing the foundation for a new cross-disciplinary enterprise that will make critical theories and research methods accessible across the natural and social sciences.

This book makes key theories and methods of the social sciences available to biologists and other environmental scientists. Moran explains biological theories and concepts for the social sciences community working on the environment, helping bridge one of the difficult divides in collaborative work in human-environment research. Environmental Social Science includes much-needed descriptions of how to carry out research that is multinational, multiscale, multitemporal, and multidisciplinary within a complex systems theory context.
