Salerno Lab of Human Adaptation and Conservation

Human adaptation can mean many different things. Our lab asks questions about how and why people adapt to environmental changes. We consider both social and biophysical aspects of environment, such as livelihood changes made in response to a policy intervention or to observed rainfall patterns. And we're interested in both causes and consequences of adaptive behaviors and how they vary across time and space.

Some of our current research themes:


Human-wildlife conflict

Mpimbwe Suk Duds

Human mobility and land change

Maize Field Drought Copy
