The diversity of environmental and natural resource management projects to reduce human footprint calls for geographic, contextual, and substantive comparisons. The journal Diversity invites multidisciplinary research, review and case-study articles under the Special Issue of "Appraisal of approaches for the management of biodiversity and life support systems". The work should be evaluating outcomes of paradigms, approaches, initiatives and tools for the management of biodiversity, whole ecosystems, ecosystem components and services in terms of effectiveness, efficiency and/or equity. Contributions that integrate ecology, economics and/or social sciences are particularly encouraged. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, restoration, spatial planning, protected areas, co-management and adaptive management, mitigation of climate change impacts, valuation, and policy tools. Deadline for the submission of contributions is 1st September 2012.
