What can social-ecological research learn from the COVID-19 pandemic? Reflections and recommendations

The COVID-19 pandemic has vividly demonstrated the susceptibility of fieldwork activities – which play a key role in social-ecological research – to sudden crisis events. This contribution is reflecting on the question of how researchers can constructively deal with such challenges and in what respect this might also constitute a chance to promote a more inclusive and equitable research landscape. We are offering recommendations for overcoming disruptions to place-based research and some food for thought that may also be of interest beyond the social-ecological research community.
