Who We Are

Gerry Marten

Gerry Marten (Ecotipping Points Project leader) is an ecologist with fifty years of research experience in a variety of ecosystems around the world. He has lived and worked in the United States and Canada, Mexico and Central America, East Africa, Southeast Asia, and Japan. His love of nature, while growing up in Southern California’s Santa Monica Mountains, kindled a scientific passion to explore how nature works, and a commitment to translating science so people and communities can make good use of it. Author of Human Ecology: Basic Concepts for Sustainable Development (Earthscan Publications, 2001) and Traditional Agriculture in Southeast Asia: A Human Ecology Perspective (Westview Press, 1986), he has published approximately one hundred scientific articles, many of them on practical concerns such as fisheries and forest management, tropical agriculture and land use, alternative energy, ecological mosquito control, and how people can live sustainably on this planet. His proudest accomplishment has been development of a biological control method that led to eradication of the dengue fever mosquito from extensive areas of Vietnam. Most recently a professor of human ecology in the School of Policy Studies at Japan’s Kwansei Gakuin University, he is now an adjunct senior fellow at the East-West Center in Honolulu. He began the EcoTipping Points project to discover how lessons from environmental success stories can point the way to making a better world for his five grandchildren and all the rest of us.
