Understanding human–environment interactions is vital for addressing current multidimensional challenges. The landscape approach is considered effective in managing and maintaining the ‘multifunctionality’ and ‘human dimensions’ of the ecological systems. Multiple stakeholder participation is another prerequisite. The discussion in the field has gradually shifted to ‘human dimensions’ together with ‘technological solutions’ for the better management of natural resources and to address challenges that our generation is facing, including global changes. Therefore, it has long been necessary to give more attention to the multidisciplinary research that can consider various nexus of the resource management and contribute to a deeper understanding of the socioecological systems.
This Special Issue aims to publish contributions that have considered human dimensions more critically in ecological management. Specific case studies and analytical reviews addressing policy and sociocultural spheres are also encouraged.
