Projects

The principal approach of PECS research is comparisons of place-based, long-term social–ecological case studies. Place-based research addresses the particularities of specific landscapes, seascapes or coastal regions and explicitly includes the social–ecological dynamics of the system. PECS welcomes place-based research that occurs at any spatial extent, from global to local.
