Although they challenge some of our claims, Myanna Lahsen and colleagues and Lauren Rickards agree with us that a new intellectual climate ought to prevail in the world of global-change science. We concur with Lahsen et al. that there are other (perhaps better) examples than those that we chose to illustrate the tendency of global change scientists to presume that a 'single, seamless concept of integrated knowledge' is realizable and desirable; Paul Palmer and Matthew Smith provide a recent case in Nature. We apologise if we misrepresented Barnes et al., and applaud the recent efforts of Barnes and Dove to detail how anthropology can help us better understand climate change.
