BRIDGES - Rapid Evidence Synthesis in Environmental Causal Assessments

Published On: 3/6/2017

New BRIDGES cluster highlights rapid evidence synthesis in environmental causal assessments

 

The latest BRIDGES cluster of articles in Freshwater Science focuses Rapid Evidence Synthesis in Environmental Causal Assessments, examining the need for accurate and informative methods for evidence synthesis to inform resource management.

 

Five papers are included in this cluster:

Challenges for evidence-based environmental management: what is acceptable and sufficient evidence of causation?

Susan J. Nichols, Michael Peat, J. Angus Webb

Freshwater Science 2017 36:1, pp. 240–249

 

Weaving common threads in environmental causal assessment methods: toward an ideal method for rapid evidence synthesis

Freshwater Science 2017 36:1, pp. 250–256

 

BRIDGES is a recurring feature of FWS intended to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and information relevant to FWS readers, but beyond the usual scope of a scientific paper. Articles in this series bridge from aquatic ecology to other disciplines (such as political science, economics, education, chemistry, or other biological sciences). Papers may be complementary or take alternative viewpoints. Authors or guest editors with ideas for topics should contact BRIDGES Editors, Allison Roy (aroy@eco.umass.edu) or Sally Entrekin (sentrekin@uca.edu).
