More: When is important? A history event? It's aftermath? Another issue of scales. Use of other forms of source material (e.g. visual material): can you model it? Art doesn't go into a spreadsheet. Challenges of publishing in natural sciences using qualitative data of any kind.

There's also an issue of temporal scale. Do temporality of different disciplines match up? Reiteration of the barriers of terminology/shared use of terms. Audience points: Different critical approaches to sources. The role of hist. of science, STS. Social bias of data.

An obstacle: historical standards/data don't necessarily meet the needs of ecologists. But GIS and other shared research environments can help to mediate datasets. There is a process of translation to make humanities address challenges to ecologists. Willingness needed to share.

Fitting historical approaches into natural science models/datasets/statistics a challenge. How do you fit history into the methods and classifications used in botany, for example. History can explain why the areas of study are homogenous or heterogeneous ecological areas.

Some good discussions of the differences between historical ecology and environmental history. Also the perrenial historiographical q. of the difference between history as narrative and history as the past. Meeting point of approaches. The question of scale.

In the lobby at waiting for the day to begin. So far ticking all the boxes with double-sided lanyard name badges, a conference app and optional paper timetable on demand.

This afternoon I'm collecting together digitally-captured keynote lectures, which includes writing short descriptions. It's reminding me how *useful* it is (for many reasons) when speakers outline, right at the beginning, what they are going to talk about! ;-)
