Abstract
There are two aspects to this Center Fellow proposal (for support during a sabbatical year): (1) research and writing for a study of NCEAS, its effects, and the recent history of ecology; (2) education about ecology and ecological research practice, which will greatly improve my efforts to integrate ecology with social science in various projects at ASU. The work would have direct and specific benefits for NCEAS and more diffuse benefits for the larger tasks of developing integrative interdisciplinary research and education.
