The macroeconomic money-nature nexus: Are growing money supplies a relevant obstacle on the way to an ecologically sustainable global economy?

Production, consumption and nature depletion have been growing rapidly for more than 300 years, even faster than exponential population growth. A comprehensive understanding of the causes behind this great acceleration is necessary if we are to achieve a sustainability transformation. This paper is intended to draw the attention in the...

Dynamic modeling of African elephant populations under changing climate and habitat loss across the Greater Virunga Landscape

Elephants in Africa are declining rapidly due to habitat loss and human-wildlife conflicts, with these problems worsening with climate change. Understanding how age classes respond to such events is crucial to designing and implementing mitigation strategies and developing the adaptive capacity of wildlife managers to respond to these challenges adequately. This study builds a dynamic simulation model of the age classes...

Rules get in the way of farmer cooperation: How Digital Agriculture could change the nature of the game in the Food-Energy-Water-Climate Nexus

The Food-Energy-Water-Climate (FEWC) nexus is a systems-based perspective that explicitly recognizes food, energy, water, and climate systems as both interconnected and interdependent, with context and scale dependent synergies and tradeoffs. Such complexities may result in unintended feedbacks, latencies, and spillovers due to poorly designed...

Utilizing high-resolution genetic markers to track population-level exposure of migratory birds to renewable energy development

With new motivation to increase the proportion of energy demands met by zero-carbon sources, there is a greater focus on efforts to assess and mitigate the impacts of renewable energy development on sensitive ecosystems and wildlife, of which birds are of particular interest. One challenge for researchers, due in part to a lack of appropriate tools, has...
