A call for manuscripts submission to contribute to a special issue of Sustainability titled "Long-Term Change and Sustainability in Arctic Social-Ecological Systems" is now open (deadline: 1 March 2022)
The papers in this Special Issue will contribute to the understanding of nature and human responses to long-term environmental change, long-term impacts of human activities on Arctic ecosystems in the context of sustainability and the resilience of Arctic social-ecological systems. The focus on long-term changes reflects the urgent need for sustainability research to consider longlasting processes and implications that lead to fundamental transformation in SES.
Specifically, the contributions to this Special Issue will
(1) improve our understanding of long-term human responses to climatic and environmental change;
(2) provide insights into longterm human impacts on Arctic and sub-Arctic ecosystems;
(3) enhance our understanding of sustainability in transforming Arctic social-ecological systems and human decision-making ‘pathways’ over generational time scales and
(4) highlight the engagement of indigenous knowledge in understanding socio-ecological dynamics at different time scales.
