Frontiers in Coupled Human-Natural Systems

From the origins of pandemics to alterations in microbial processes that shape food production, the coupling of human-natural systems shapes our lives.

Within this conference, we seek to examine how coupled human-natural systems impact water and food security, biodiversity, carbon storage and greenhouse gas dynamics, and disease vectors, among others. We welcome approaches of studying human-natural systems from the biophysical to remotely sensed to human behavioral.
