Ecological Society of America (ESA) Releases Free Collection of Environmental Justice Research

From the Ecological Society of America (ESA):

ESA is offering a free online collection of articles representing fifteen years of environmental justice research published across the Society’s six journals. The collection includes research on the ecological factors associated with social inequities and environmental injustices, and offers insights into gaps in environmental justice research. In recent decades the ecological sciences have documented numerous examples of disparities in access to natural resources and cases of marginalized communities facing disproportionate exposure to environmental hazards. However, the broader problem of environmental racism has been viewed by many scholarly communities as a societal issue that is “somebody else’s problem,” rather than as a problem that environmental researchers must address.

The editors of the collection are available to provide comment to the media about the incorporation of human dimensions and justice issues into ecological research.
