Assistant Professor Rachael Garrett has published “Middle-range Theories of Land System Change” in Global Environmental Change. Dr. Garrett and her colleagues note that while an integrated theory of land system change remains elusive, they show that contextual generalizations that describe chains of causal mechanisms explaining a well-bounded range of phenomena, as well as the conditions that trigger, enable, or prevent these causal chains, provide a path towards generalized knowledge of land systems.
