The Environmental Sociology section publishes scholarly works that analyze human societies in ecological contexts, examining how societies affect and are affected by the biophysical environment. Research that furthers our understanding of how economic, political, demographic, and cultural characteristics of societies influence the global climate, biodiversity, the abundance of wildlife, land cover, natural resources, and other environmental conditions and processes is one of the main concerns of the section. Research that addresses how societies recognize and/or adapt, or fail to recognize and/or adapt, to environmental change is also of interest. Research that critically analyzes how power, justice, and inequality are intertwined with human-environmental interactions is recognized as particularly valuable to developing the field of environmental sociology. Empirical research based on any type of rigorous methodology, including quantitative, qualitative, and historical approaches is welcome, as are theoretical and methodological contributions.
