Palabras clave:

ciencias naturales, ciencias sociales, interdisciplinario, estudios humanísticos, valores, tradiciones, calidad de vida


En este artículo analizamos y desafiamos el paradigma que reduce el campo de las invasiones biológicas a sus componentes ecológicos. Para esto, revisamos trece casos de estudio agrupados dentro de tres dimensiones humanas principales (valores, tradiciones y calidad de vida) para mostrar cómo las invasiones biológicas se entretejen e interactúan con ellas. El grupo de dimensiones humanas que exploramos en este trabajo, aunque pequeño, expone un rico espectro de sinergias interdisciplinarias entre las ciencias naturales y sociales que deberían recibir más atención para hacer que el campo de las invasiones biológicas sea más sólido y socialmente integrado.
