SoBio. Mobilising the European social research potential in support of biodiversity and ecosystem management

To prevent the decline of biodiversity and ensure sustainable management of ecosystems, it is necessary to understand the socio-economic processes and structures that affect them. SoBio aims to undertand the role of the social sciences in the management of ecosystems and biodiversity and stimulate new research in the field of this interaction.
