Over the years there have been some discussions on this list about using SNA in studying natural resource management. This “subfield” has grown in interest, and now there is a fair amount of publications on the subject (see e.g. the Ecology & Society special issue - http://bit.ly/g80m7T ). In addition, this month a book entitled “Social networks and natural resource management: uncovering the social fabric of environmental governance” is released (see http://www.cambridge.org/9780521146234 ). The book is intended to provide an overview to this emerging field; offering case studies; critical reflections; research guidance; and some introductory material.
To support the still rather small but growing community of scholars interested in this line of research, a mailing list called Naseberry was set up a while ago on "Network Analysis in Social-Ecological Studies". If you’re interested in this area of research, please join us on the list by sending an e-mail to Henrik Ernstson ([log in to unmask]) with your name, e-mail address and a couple of sentences telling us about your interest in the area, and we will add you to the list.
Finally, the recent blogpost on Resilience Science: http://bit.ly/hnnbZr might be of interest as well.
