A new paper by our Advisory Board member Jianguo Liu et al. (among others our colleagues Ed Challies and Cecilie Friis) on Spillover systems in a telecoupled Anthropocene: typology, methods, and governance for global sustainability has been published. The paper is the outcome of a collaboration based on a symposium at the Conference of the International Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE) in April 2017.
To untangle spillover complexity, the authors make the first attempt to develop a typology of spillover systems based on six criteria: flows from and to sending and receiving systems, distances from sending and receiving systems, types of spillover effects, sizes of spillover systems, roles of agents in spillover systems, and the origin of spillover systems. Furthermore, they highlight a portfolio of qualitative and quantitative methods for detecting the often-overlooked spillover systems.
