Change and Adaptation in Socio-Ecological Systems
Published/Hosted by Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG.
The interrelations of human beings with ecosystems experience rising importance in sustainable land use planning and lead to the concept of socio-ecological system. Socio-Ecological Systems (SES) include both, a bio-geo-physical component and the related local to regional actors. Their system boundaries depend on the problem context and can be either determined by environmental parameters or socio-cultural factors. SES experience constant change and adaptation processes related to utilization, management, policy, ecological, and external influences. The scope of CASES is to publish original papers, review and synthesis papers, and short communications, and research letters addressing an interdisciplinary point of view on change and adaptation of socio-ecological systems from management unit level to policy level. Thematically, CASES aims to address all studies that have a focus on the impact of global change and climate change, on functioning or services of socio-ecological systems and related human-environment interactions, on understanding, monitoring and proposing innovative approaches, tools and technologies to adapt and bring forward system management and development.
