Abstract: We all know that humans are part of the so-called Environment, but the collapse of human-dominated ecosystems in not so distant and recent times suggests that we don't have a good understanding of human-environment systems. What are some of the belief and values that humans introduce into their interactions with ecosystems and how do these in turn affect sustainability? I will address these questions and give an example of an approach to coupling human-environment systems from our recent work on mathematical modeling of human influence on forest-grassland mosaic dynamics.

Macbeth is Shakespeare's shortest play and most popular tragedy. Shakespeare's approach to a swifter kind of action should leave the audience no time to think.  Its intensity is most vividly realized in the play's language and through its repeated words and images. Shakespeare is writing about corrupted power, violence, and the relationship between the dark and light forces. He evokes this through one of his greatest creations - the character of Macbeth - a difficult but willing commitment to darkness.
