Andersson. E., McPhearson, T. 2018. Making Sense of Biodiversity: The Affordances of Systems Ecology. Front. Psychol., 04 May 2018. DOI: https://doi.org/10.3389/fpsyg.2018.00594
We see two related, but not well-linked fields that together could help us better understand biodiversity and how it, over time, provides benefits to people. The affordances approach in environmental psychology offers a way to understand our perceptual appraisal of landscapes and biodiversity and, to some extent, intentional choice or behavior, i.e., a way of relating the individual to the system s/he/it lives in. In the field...

Cities are currently experiencing serious, multifaceted impacts from global environmental change, especially climate change, and the degree to which they will need to cope with and adapt to such challenges will continue to increase. A complex systems approach inspired by evolutionary theory can inform strategies for policies and interventions to deal with growing urban vulnerabilities. Such an approach would guide the design o...
Andersson E., S. Borgström, T. McPhearson. 2017. Double Insurance in Dealing with Extremes: Ecological and Social Factors for Making Nature-Based Solutions Last. In Kabisch N., H. Korn, J. Stadler, A. Bonn. (Eds.) Nature-Based Solutions to Climate Change Adaptation in Urban Areas. Theory and Practice of Urban Sustainability Transitions. Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-56091-5_4
This open access book brings together research findings and experiences from science, policy and practice to highlight and debate the importance of nature-based solutions to climate change adaptation in urban areas. Emphasis is given to the potential of nature-based approaches to create multiple-benefits for society. The expert contributions present recommendations for creating synergies between ongoing policy processes, scien...
