Research on human-environment relations is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary. Various and often quite different disciplines spanning natural, social and human sciences engage in research focusing on how humans live in, affect, govern, reflect upon and perceive their natural environment, and how, in turn, that environment supports or constrains human life and culture. A multiplicity of methods, epistemologies and even ontologies thus intermingle in human-environment research. How well do these integrate to enable (truly) interdisciplinary research?
