About Christine M Beitl

My research broadly explores interactions between socio-political, ecological, and economic systems. I specialize in the study of common pool resources in coastal and marine environments. I am particularly interested in collective action, individual decision-making, property arrangements, customary norms in fishing, drivers and consequences of coastal mangrove landscape change, social movements, sustainability science, complex adaptive systems, policy, and environmental governance. My research employs the use of mixed methods, ethnographic and fishery data, qualitative and quantitative analysis, and geographic information systems to explore coupled interactions between humans and the environment in Maine and Ecuador.
