We use coupled human-natural systems science to inform environmental policy. We study what is called ecological “spatial subsidies” (the transport of energy, nutrients, or materials across ecosystem boundaries) to quantify previously uncalculated ideas such as the ecological benefits of migratory species, ecoclimate teleconnections (how variations in one climate region affects the ecosystem of a remote location), and evaluations on transboundary ecosystems services.
