In order to live up to the aim of multidisciplinary integration, we focus on actively co-authored contributions, disseminated to meet as many as possible of potential interests such as within the historical ecological framework, resilience based research, urban studies, environmental studies, history and archaeology. We aim for contributions with various geographical, chronological and thematic scales, detailing theoretical and methodological issues, as well as both long-term and short term perspectives.

Below we list articles from the last years, from our previous and current project, most of which are available with Open Access. For those works that are not, we are happy to send off-prints on request.
