EASDALE, Marcos H.; LOPEZ, Dardo R.  and  AGUIAR, Martín R.. Tensions between Ecosystem Preservation and Territorial Development: Towards a Social-Ecological Approach in the Farming Sciences. Cuad. Desarro. Rural [online]. 2018, vol.15, n.81, pp.26-45. ISSN 0122-1450.

The farming sciences are an academic link between sociology and ecology. Currently, there is a prevalent technocratic perspective intended to increase both the productivity and the efficiency with a strong instrumental and operative drive in order to cope with many complex problems. This way some other aspects have been put in the background, even though they should be considered when dealing with the rural development and sustainability. The paper aims to discuss on the role of the farming sciences as an academic link useful to cope with social-environmental problems and the tensions arising in the preservation of rural ecosystems and the territorial development.

Keywords : agronomy; interdisciplinary; social-ecological systems; sustainability.
