Human Dimensions of Natural Resources
This field is at the cutting edge of the challenges we face today: shortages of food, clean water, fuel; population growth, emergent zoonotic diseases, economic development balanced with conservation of natural spaces and wildlife, and a host of other complex issues with no clear answers and diverse stakeholders. The field encompasses many disciplinary approaches, from innovation and social entrepreneurship to entomology and virology. It employs biology, ecology, hydrology, sociology, psychology, communications, information technology and business.
