Yellowstone BAC and the Sciences of Vulnerability

This study looks at the water management structures of the Yellowstone River to better understand 1) the political ecology of water as a finite resource, with consideration of how ecological functions are promoted and valued; 2) human responses to the threat of resource depletions, especially in terms of willingness to adopt and advocate pre-crisis strategies that recognize human and non-human interests and functions; and 3) equity and justice  in resource sharing, both with human and non-human communities and functions.
