ECOSISTEMAS JOURNAL: SCIENCE-MANAGEMENT-SOCIETY INTERFACE IN THE FIELD OF CONSERVATION: CONCEPTUAL AND METHODOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGHS
Volume 29, Num. 1 (January-April 2020) of the Ecosystems journal, published by the Spanish Association of Terrestrial Ecology, is a monograph entitled ‘Science-management-society interface in the field of conservation: conceptual and methodological breakthroughs’.
Ibone Ametzaga-Arregi and María Viota, from the UNESCO Chair, were the two guest editors invited to work on this monograph alongside María Dolores López-Rodríguez and Fco. Javier Cabello. In their editorial they explain the different conceptual and methodological approaches adopted by Sustainability Science to rise to the challenges of global change. They also outline the different works featured in the monograph, all of which help establish the dialogues between science, management and society that are so desperately needed in order to boost the transition towards more resilient socio-ecological systems.
Of the articles which make up this edition, four are directly linked to the journal’s main area of interest and were presented as papers at the recent conference entitled ‘Building bridges between science and management. Research for sustainability in Biosphere Reserves’, which was held from 13 to 15 November 2019 at the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve (Bizkaia).
