Book shows evolution that joins human and environmental sciences
Date:2/6/2013

Hot-button issues such as climate change, wildlife conservation and restoring decimated rainforests are renowned scientific playgrounds.

The biological/ecological scientists for years have been in the front row agronomists, biologists, hydrologist, climatologists, ecologists have weighed in with heavy equipment and heavy data from GPS and satellite imaging.

Emilio Moran, co-editor of a new book "Human-Environmental Interactions," makes the case that people -- their motivations and indeed, how they feel are indispensable data when it comes to saving the planet and addressing environmental problems.

"For many years people have tended to work separately across many different interests," Moran said. "Today they all agree we need to work together and integrate the mechanisms and methods of social and natural sciences in order to address environmental problems."

Moran, Visiting Hannah Professor of geography at Michigan State University, is a world-renowned social scientist who has made his academic mark by resolutely marching into other disciplines. Trained as a social anthropologist, he has worked for 30 years in the Brazilian Amazon, exploring the humid tropic's potential for intensive agriculture a question that has led him academically into soils, agricultural production, deforestation, reforestation and how humans make decisions.

Now Moran is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and what then was an academic incongruity today has become cutting edge contemporary scientific pursuit valued by many scientists. The book, which he co-edited with Eduardo Brondizio of Indiana University, joins junior and senior scientists to explore what role humans play in addressing health challenges, managing forests and animal species across the world, and how they make good and bad decisions of environmental significance.

A decade ago, science began taking apart the earth's components -- oceans, terrestrial ecosyste
