Pursuit: Synergistic Interactions of Environmental Degradation, Socio-Economic Development and Infectious Disease Dynamics in the Amazon Region

 

"Synergistic Interactions of Environmental Degradation, Socio-Economic Development and Infectious Disease Dynamics in the Amazon Region"

This Pursuit will use data from land-use changes, disease records, and socio-economic surveys to map spatio-temporal patterns of disease transmission onto socio-economic changes underway in the Amazon, and vice-versa. The team will deliver a framework for formulating and parameterizing models of vector-borne diseases in landscapes undergoing rapid transformation.

Pursuit: Social-Ecological Drivers of Change Over Time in Urban Woodlands

 

"Social-Ecological Drivers of Change Over Time in Urban Woodlands"

Remnant and regenerating forest patches are hotspots of biodiversity and ecosystem services in urban regions. Social uses and benefits, abrupt forest edges, introduced and invasive species, and urban climate warming combine to create novel ecological conditions and management challenges in urban woodlands. An array of public, private, and non-profit organizations engage in management and stewardship of these urban woodland patches.

Workshop: Synthesizing Research on Pastoral Governance of Common-Pool Resources

 

"Synthesizing Research on Pastoral Governance of Common-Pool Resources"

Communities of mobile livestock keepers—pastoralists—often have systems for the governance and management of land and resources that do not conform to theoretical models that have been developed based on experience in other kinds of ecosystems.

Graduate Pursuit: The Globalization of Conservation: How Public Perceptions of Biodiversity and International Trade Patterns Shape Mangrove Conservation

 

"The Globalization of Conservation: How Public Perceptions of Biodiversity and International Trade Patterns Shape Mangrove Conservation"

Although conservation is implemented locally, the forces that shape conservation policy and decision-making are increasingly global. Simultaneously promoting human prosperity while protecting biodiversity requires an understanding of how interactions between global and local forces shape conservation management.

Short Course: 2020 Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data

 

Short Course: Interactive Web-Based Visualizations and Decision Support Tools in Shiny/R for Quantitative Scientists

Solutions to pressing environmental problems require understanding connections between human and natural systems. Analysis of these systems requires a model that can deal with complexity, is able to exploit data from multiple sources, and is honest about the uncertainty from multiple sources. Synthesis of results from multiple studies is often required.

Graduate Pursuit: An Area of Conflict: The Effects of Agricultural Subsidization on Conservation Goals Worldwide

 

"An Area of Conflict: The Effects of Agricultural Subsidization on Conservation Goals Worldwide"

This project is the result of a partnership between the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) (Germany), the University of Leeds (UoL) (UK), and the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) at the University of Maryland (UMD) (USA); the project brings together highly qualified PhD students interested in an international collaborative synthesis research exp
