Telecoupling. Understanding how small and connected the world is. New methods, new paths to sustainability
ECOSYSTEM HEALTH AND SUSTAINABILITY -- New road for telecoupling global prosperity and ecological sustainability
Published on November 4, 2016
We apply the integrated framework of telecoupling and propose to enhance infrastructure connection, transboundary actions, scientific and cultural exchanges, and institutional innovations within the Belt and Road region.
Published on September 11, 2015
In an introduction to the special feature, we provide an overview of CHANS feedbacks. In addition, we synthesize key CHANS feedbacks that emerged in the papers across agricultural, forest, and urban landscapes.
WATER INTERNATIONAL -- Telecoupling in urban water systems: an examination of Beijing's imported water supply
Published on December 3, 2015
We apply the new telecoupling framework to the water-stressed megacity of Beijing’s imported water supply.
RETHINKING GLOBAL LAND USE IN AN URBAN ERA - Significance of Telecoupling for Exploration of Land-Use Change
Published on April 22, 2014
Land systems are increasingly infl uenced by distal connections: the externalities and unintended consequences of social and ecological processes which occur in distant locations
Published on February 27, 2015
Systems integration—holistic approaches to integrating various components of coupled human and natural systems—is critical to understand socioeconomic and environmental interconnections and to create sustainability solutions.
Published on March 29, 2019
We constructed and analyzed interprovincial virtual water and energy transfer networks, using China (the largest energy consumer and is undergoing severe water scarcity) as a demonstration.
APPLIED GEOGRAPHY -- The Telecoupling GeoApp: A Web-GIS application to systematically analyze telecouplings and sustainable development
Published on May 16, 2018
To operationalize the framework, we have developed the Telecoupling GeoApp, a new web-based component of the Telecoupling Toolbox that provides researchers and practitioners with a useful platform to address globally important issues.

Book chapter -- preview of first 20 pages
Published on October 12, 2016
Urban areas such as megacities (those with populations greater than 10 million) are hotspots of global water use and thus face intense water management challenges
Published on April 14, 2019
We compile different indicators for assessing interregional ES flows and evaluate their suitability for national and regional ES assessments.
ECOLOGY AND SOCIETY -- Telecoupling Toolbox: spatially explicit tools for studying telecoupled human and natural systems
Published on October 19, 2017
We introduce the Telecoupling Toolbox, the first set of tools developed to map and identify the five major interrelated components of the telecoupling framework: systems, flows, agents, causes, and effects.

A study of the spatial attributes of soybean land changes within and among trading countries at the same time.
SUSTAINABILITY -- Complex interrelationships between ecosystem services supply and tourism demand: General framework and evidence from the origin of three Asian rivers
Published on December 19, 2018
This study identifies complex interrelationships between the demand for nature-based tourism, which is a type of cultural ES, ES supply, and the economy simultaneously, using China’s Qinghai Province as a demonstration site.
Published on November 26, 2017
This paper presents an integrated framework of metacoupling: human-nature interactions within a system (intracoupling), between distant systems (telecoupling), and between adjacent systems (pericoupling).
ECOLOGY AND SOCIETY - Network analysis as a tool for quantifying the dynamics of metacoupled systems: an example using global soybean trade
Published on October 14, 2018
Network analysis is a powerful and flexible tool that has been used to quantify social, economic, and ecological systems. We evaluate the utility of network analysis for quantifying metacoupled systems by assessing global soybean trade among 217 countries.
ECOSYSTEM SERVICES -- Global relationships between biodiversity and nature-based tourism in protected areas
Published on October 30, 2018
We present results on the interplay between biodiversity conservation and nature-based tourism, while controlling for environmental and socioeconomic factors in and surrounding terrestrial PAs worldwide.
ECOLOGY AND SOCIETY -- Complex effects of natural disasters on protected areas through altered telecouplings
Published on September 14, 2018
With long-term data collected in China’s Wolong Nature Reserve for giant pandas, we applied the telecoupling framework to assess the effects of the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake on telecouplings that link Wolong with the rest of the world
ASIA AND THE PACIFIC POLICY STUDIES -- Forest Sustainability in China and Implications for a Telecoupled World
Published on December 19, 2013
Using the framework of telecoupling we found that China’s forest cover increase is affected by multiple telecoupling processes and their interactions with each other and with other factors.
Published on May 4, 2018
Our study shows that international food trade can also lead to environmental pollution in importing countries.
SCIENCE CHINA - LIFE SCIENCES -- Conservation planning beyond giant pandas: the need for an innovative telecoupling framework
Published on December 27, 2016
A develop of innovative systems approaches that improve human well being while sustaining wildlife populations and their habitats.
