Land system science axiomatically addresses social–environmental systems by integrating the dynamics of land uses (social) and land covers (environment), invariably including the use of remote sensing data and often, spatially explicit models of land change. This kind of research is illustrated through the Southern Yucatán Peninsular Region project (1997–2008) aimed at understanding, predicting, and projecting spatially explicit land change in a region with juxtaposed land uses-agriculture and a biosphere reserve. The successes of the project, its contributions to contemporary land system science, and the organizational mechanisms that fostered the research are identified as well as various corrections, which if applied, may have refined and extended the project's goals. Overall, the project demonstrates the kind of integrated research required to advance understanding of a social-environment system and the team-based methods used in the process.

Resumen en inglés

This series is dedicated to serving the growing cornrnunity of scholars and practitioners concerned with the principles and applications of environ rnental rnanagernent. Each volurne will be a thorough treatrnent of a spe cific topic of irnportance for proper rnanagernent practices. A fundarnental objective of these books is to help the reader discern and irnplernent rnan's stewardship of our environrnent and the world's renewable resources. For we rnust strive to understand the relationship between rnan and nature, act to bring harmony to it and nurture an environrnent that is both stable and productive. These objectives have often eluded us because the pursuit of other in dividual and societal goals has diverted us frorn a course of living in bal ance with the environrnent. At tirnes, therefore, the environrnental rnan ager rnay have to exert restrictive control, which is usually best applied to rnan, not nature. Attempts to alter or harness nature have often failed or backfired, as exemplified by the results of irnprudent use of herbicides, fertilizers, water and other agents. Each book in this series will shed light on the fundarnental and applied aspects of environrnental rnanagernent. It is hoped that each will help solve a practical and serious environrnental problern.
