Systems thinking attends to various aspects of networks including interactions among parts, inputs and outputs, system boundaries, and the notion of nested systems (American Association for the Advancement of Science [AAAS] 1989). Other dimensions of systems thinking include understanding three critical scientific laws that govern complex systems: the law of limits to growth, the second law of thermodynamics (entropy), and the law of self-organization in complex systems (Wessels 2006). While systems thinking is multifarious in character and cannot be reduced to a single set of ideas for environmental and science education, there is tremendous value in applying a systems lens to thinking about interactions within and between the natural, designed, and social worlds.
