Abstract: Abstract We have two objectives in this topical collection of papers. First, we bring together in one place, original research that sheds light on the ways in which the notion of “space” affects the conceptualization of natural resource and environmental problems. Second, given this conceptualization, we show how rigorous modeling of natural resource and environmental problems that explicitly accounts for space overcomes some of the shortcomings of non-spatial analysis. Following this introductory paper, there are five additional papers in this topical collection. Each of these papers discusses a particular research question at the interface of what we call “space and the environment.”
