Originally published:

In a perspective article published in Nature Sustainability, Prof. Paige Fischer and co-authors identify limitations in current network-centric research approaches. They emphasize the need to move beyond the scope of most network-oriented studies—which are limited to measuring and describing patterns of social-ecological interdependencies—and instead leverage this powerful approach “to increase understanding of the capacity of social-ecological systems to adapt to change,” Fischer says.
