This volume presents new theoretical approaches, methodologies, subject pools, and topics in the field of environmental anthropology. Environmental anthropologists are increasingly focusing on self-reflection - not just on themselves and their impacts on environmental research, but also on the reflexive qualities of their subjects, and the extent to which these individuals are questioning their own environmental behavior. Here, contributors confront the very notion of qnatural resourcesq in granting non-human species their subjectivity and arguing for deeper understanding of qnature, q and qwildernessq beyond the label of qecosystem services.q By engaging in interdisciplinary efforts, these anthropologists present new ways for their colleagues, subjects, peers and communities to understand the causes of, and alternatives to environmental destruction. This book demonstrates that environmental anthropology has moved beyond the construction of rural, small group theory, entering into a mode of solution-based methodologies and interdisciplinary theories for understanding human-environmental interactions. It is focused on post-rural existence, health and environmental risk assessment, on the realm of alternative actions, and emphasizes the necessary steps towards preventing environmental crisis.Future Directions Helen Kopnina, Eleanor Shoreman-Ouimet. the Gulf Oil Spill of 2010, and high-water marks and significant flooding along the Mississippi in 2011 (which led the mayor of Donaldsonville ... of residents having no more than a high school diploma and a median household income under $25, 000, about half of the national median. ...
