Malmborg, K., Enfors-Kautsky, E., Queiroz, C. et al. Operationalizing ecosystem service bundles for strategic sustainability planning: A participatory approach. Ambio 50, 314–331 (2021). https://doi.org/10.1007/s13280-020-01378-w
The ecosystem service concept is recognized as a useful tool to support sustainability in decision-making. In this study, we collaborated with actors in the Helge å catchment, southern Sweden, in an iterative participatory ecosystem service assessment. Through workshops and interviews, we jointly decided which ecosystem services to assess and indicators to use in order to achieve a sense of ownership and a higher legitimacy of...
Léger A, Lambraki I, Graells T, Cousins M, Henriksson PJG, Harbarth S, Carson C, Majowicz S, Troell M, Parmley EJ, Jørgensen PS, Wernli D. 2021. AMR-Intervene: a social-ecological framework to capture the diversity of actions to tackle antimicrobial resistance from a One Health perspective. J Antimicrob Chemother. 2021 Jan 1;76(1):1-21. doi: 10.1093/jac/dkaa394. PMID: 33057678.
The global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) requires coordinated actions by and across different sectors. Increasing attention at the global and national levels has led to different strategies to tackle the challenge. The diversity of possible actions to address AMR is currently not well understood from a One Health perspective. AMR-Intervene, an interdisciplinary social–ecological framework, describes interventions t...

Water management and governance at the watershed scale is complex, with attention needed to the realities of fit with institutional arrangements and consideration of the dynamic and uncertain nature of social-ecological systems. The concept of social-ecological resilience and its application to water resources – ‘water resilience’ hereafter – offers a framework by which to approach these critical considerations. Water resilien...
Sigwart, J.D., Blasiak, R., Jaspars, M., Jouffray, J-D., Tasdemir, D., 2021. Unlocking the potential of marine biodiscovery. Nat. Prod. Rep., 2021, Advance Article, https://doi.org/10.1039/D0NP00067A
The tremendous diversity of life in the ocean has proven to be a rich source of inspiration for drug discovery, with success rates for marine natural products up to 4 times higher than other naturally derived compounds. Yet the marine biodiscovery pipeline is characterized by chronic underfunding, bottlenecks and, ultimately, untapped potential. For instance, a lack of taxonomic capacity means that, on average, 20 years pass ...
Virdin, J., Vegh, T., Jouffray, J-B., Blasiak, R., Mason, S., Österblom, H., Vermeer, D., Watchmeister, H., Werner, N. 2021. The Ocean 100: Transnational corporations in the ocean economy. Science Advances 13 Jan 2021. Vol. 7, no. 3, eabc8041, DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.abc8041
The ocean economy is growing as commercial use of the ocean accelerates, while progress toward achieving international goals for ocean conservation and sustainability is lagging. In this context, the private sector is increasingly recognized as having the capacity to hamper efforts to achieve aspirations of sustainable ocean-based development or alternatively to bend current trajectories of ocean use by taking on the mantle of...
Rosenzweig, B.R., Cantis, P.H., Kim. Y., Cohn, A., Grove, K., et.al. 2021. The Value of Urban Flood Modeling. Earth's Future, Volume 9, Issue 1 January 2021, https://doi.org/10.1029/2020EF001739
Floods are important disturbances to urban socio-eco-technical systems and their meteorological drivers are projected to increase through the century due to global climate change. Urban flood models are numerical models that have the capability of representing the features of urban ecosystems and the mechanisms of flooding that impact them. They have the potential to play a critical role in flood risk assessment, operational r...
Andersson, E., Haase, D., Anderson, P. et al. What are the traits of a social-ecological system: towards a framework in support of urban sustainability. npj Urban Sustain 1, 14 (2021). https://doi.org/10.1038/s42949-020-00008-4
To ensure that cities and urban ecosystems support human wellbeing and overall quality of life we need conceptual frameworks that can connect different scientific disciplines as well as research and practice. In this perspective, we explore the potential of a traits framework for understanding social-ecological patterns, dynamics, interactions, and tipping points in complex urban systems. To do so, we discuss what kind of fra...

Key insights on needs in urban regional governance - Global urbanization (the increasing concentration in urban settlements of the increasing world population), is a driver and accelerator of shifts in diversity, new cross-scale interactions, decoupling from ecological processes, increasing risk and exposure to shocks. Responding to the challenges of urbanization demands fresh commitments to a city–regional perspective in ways...
Winkelmann, R., Donges, J., F., Smith, K.E., Milkoreit, M., Eder, C., Heitzig, J., Katsanidou, A., Wiedermann, M., Wunderling, N., Lenton, T.M. 2021. Social tipping processes for sustainability: An analytical framework. arXiv:2010.04488
Societal transformations are necessary to address critical global challenges, such as mitigation of anthropogenic climate change and reaching UN sustainable development goals. Recently, social tipping processes have received increased attention, as they present a form of social change whereby a small change can shift a sensitive social system into a qualitatively different state due to strongly self-amplifying (mathematically ...

Green Apartheid: Urban green infrastructure remains unequally distributed across income and race geographies in South Africa. Landscape and Urban Planning Volume 203, November 2020, 103889, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.landurbplan.2020.103889
Urban green infrastructureprovides ecosystem services that are essential to human wellbeing. A dearth of national-scale assessments in the Global South has precluded the ability toexplore how political regimes, such as the forced racial segregation in SouthAfrica during and after Apartheid, have influenced the extent of and access togreen infrastructure over time. We investigate whether there are disparities ingreen infrastru...
