New Publication: The Elgar Companion to Geography, Transdisciplinarity and Sustainability


This book was recently published as an edited volume by IPSI Steering Committee member the Neotropical Montology Collaboratory at the University of Georgia’s Fausto Sarmiento and Larry Frolich. According to the Elgar website, “With contributions from top geographers, this Companion frames sustainability as exemplar of transdisciplinary science (critical geography) while improving future scenarios, debating perspectives between rich North/poor South, modern urban/backwards rural, and everything in between.” In addition to chapters by other IPSI friends, the volume contains a chapter on “The Satoyama Initiative for landscape/seascape sustainability” by the IPSI Secretariat’s own William Dunbar and former staff member Kaoru Ichikawa.
