In this transdisciplinary PhD – course, the state-of-the-art of ecological and social research utilizing network perspectives will be presented. The course will focus on similarities and differences between network approaches in ecology and social sciences and we will discuss the potential benefits and limitations of using a network approach as a novel tool to analyze linked social-ecological systems. The course is open to PhD-students in ecology and social sciences. Venue: Centre for Transdisciplinary Environmental Research, Stockholm University, Sweden.
