About this book

In his book Consilience, EO Wilson argued that integrating knowledge and insights from the humanities, social and natural sciences would hold the key to solving complex environmental and social problems. This book describes a pathbreaking effort to apply this theoretical construct in a real-world setting. It combines sections on the theoretical underpinnings of relevant concepts in population biology, simulation modeling, and social science with detailed descriptions of six PHVA workshops conducted on different species in 4 continents.
