Abstract

This chapter enumerates research approaches that aid researchers in understanding the complex manner in which phosphorus flows through human societies. It highlights the importance of understanding phosphorus stocks and flows to prevent wasting phosphorus resources. It enumerates how some research approaches are evolving to focus temporal, spatial, human, and contextual system factors that influence phosphorus use and flows. It also provides a vision for more holistic research that integrates with farmer education and primary and secondary vision to promote institutionalization of sustainable phosphorus-use practices.
