Abstract

Integrating the analysis of natural and social systems to achieve sustainability has been an international scientific goal for years. However, full integration has proven challenging, especially in regard to the role of culture, which is often missing from the complex sustainability equation. To enact policies and practices that can achieve sustainability, researchers and policymakers must do a better job of accounting for culture, difficult though this task may be.
