James A. Roumasset, Kimberly M. Burnett and Arsenio Balicasan (eds), Sustainability Science for Watershed Landscapes
The word ‘sustainability’ has blossomed into so many ideas (some count 500) that it risks losing any scientific value. The authors of Sustainability Science for Watershed Landscapes take a concept of positive sustainability that posits sustainable growth as neither an objective nor a constraint. Their most important contribution is their effort “to embrace policy sciences” (p. 3, Ravago et al.).
