Kinzig’s research focuses on urban ecology, the resilience of human-environment interactions across long time scales and science policy. She studies ecosystem services, conservation-development interactions, and the resilience of natural-resource systems. Kinzig is involved in three major research projects, including: (1) Advancing Conservation in a Social Context (examining the trade-offs between conservation and development goals in developing nations); (2) The resilience of pre-historic landscapes in the American Southwest; and (3) Assessments of ecosystem services, their valuation, and mechanisms for ensuring their continued delivery.
