Record #187144:

Demographic and environmental conditions are uncoupled in the socio-ecological system of the Pribilof Islands / Henry P. Huntington, Sarah A. Kruse, Astrid J. Scholz.

Title: Demographic and environmental conditions are uncoupled in the socio-ecological system of the Pribilof Islands / Henry P. Huntington, Sarah A. Kruse, Astrid J. Scholz.
Author(s): Huntington, Henry P.
Kruse, Sarah A.
Scholz, Astrid J.
Date: 2009.
In: Polar Research. (2009.), Vol. 28(1) (2009)
Abstract: Examines current and recent conditions on Pribilof Islands to assess local perceptions of, and prospects for, economic, social and environmental well-being. Finds few correlations between environmental conditions and socio-economic indicators. Lack of apparent connection between population levels and economic or environmental stimuli could be attributable to several factors: modest economic dependence on environment; predominance of other economic inputs to economies of islands; islanders basing residence choices largely on non-economic factors; and islanders' tolerance of economic fluctuations and uncertainty.
Notes:

Polar Research. Vol. 28(1) :119-128 (2009).
