Global Change/Global Health:
Revealing Critical Interactions between Social and Environmental Processes

The Global Change/Global Health book series seeks single-authored monographs exploring the interplay between the wellbeing of Earth’s people and the planet’s changing nature. We invite proposals from researchers who are studying the intersections of global change and global health. We encourage proposals from authors with manuscripts at any stage of development.

At the intersection of global change analyses and global health studies, this book series frames global change and human health as direct and indirect causes and consequences of each other. Human responses to the continuous transformations in the Earth’s atmosphere, ocean, and land involve biopsychosocial shifts in human communities. Ongoing macroecological dynamics cause shifts in the planet’s temperature; atmospheric and hydrologic cycles; terrestrial systems; and in weather and climate. These dynamics lead to changes in human diseases, illnesses, and injuries; food and nutrition; stress and trauma disorders (from extreme events and natural disasters) and other mental health issues; social, cultural, and intellectual wellbeing; settlement, mobility, and demography; reproduction and adaptation; and symbols, meanings and values associated with landscape features, places, and processes. The Global Change/Global Health series explores the interactions between humans and the Earth by publishing monographs written by scholars working in the social, behavioral, and health sciences.
