Social-ecological systems in Indian urban-rural gradients: Functions, Scales, and Transition Dynamics - Project Phase 2.

The project addresses the following scientific questions:

  1. How do agricultural production systems and household structures change at different stages of urbanization?
  2. How does urbanization affect the ability of regional ecosystems to provide food and other ecosystem services?
  3. How do exchange processes between agroecosystems, producers and consumers, or between different social groups change as urbanization progresses?
  4. How do social and ecological systems interact when rural and urban lifestyles, traditions, demands, and land uses collide?
