The Human Dimensions of Natural Resources Lab in the School of Natural Resources conducts research on the social aspects of natural resources management. We use a variety of approaches to study the interactions between social and ecological systems, with an emphasis on recreationally exploited systems and conservation. Our work combines stated and revealed behavior of hunters, anglers, and foragers, ecological and behavioral responses of exploited organisms, and computational approaches to human dimensions questions.
