iEMSs sessions on "Modelling responses to shocks in coupled socio-ecological systems"

We would like to bring your attention to the special session on ‘Modelling responses to shocks in coupled socio-ecological systems’, which will be held at iEMSs 2012 (please see the announcement attached). There are many examples of sudden abrupt changes in complex socio-environmental systems.
