The complex relationship between homo sapiens and its habitat is a fascinating story of adaptation and transformation. With a growing ability to alter the Earth’s environment, humans have changed the locus of control of food production and gained unprecedented access to natural resources and geographical spaces.However, the focus on short-term gain at the expenses of a more sustainable coexistence with the Earth’s processes caused profound environmental changes and exposed homo sapiens to increasing disaster risks. Scientists at UNIVPM are contributing to the debate on which new models and adaptation strategies should be devised to safeguard humans’ survival in this fast changing Earth.
