  9. 9. Some initial conclusions• Drivers: greatest focus on global environmental change• Primary natural science emphasis: ecosystems andinteractions within them• Few papers on social systems consider global drivers• Quite a lot of papers on institutions/decision-making• Rather few papers focusing on resources/land use; moreon how changes in resources/land use drive environmentalchanges• Relatively few papers consider entire socio-ecologicalsystems/processes (driven by global change)• Systems > Target > Transformation knowledge Global Change and the World’s Mountains Perth – Scotland – 26-30 September 2010
