Castree et al.(2014) are correct that a ‘single, seamless concept of integrated knowledge’ cannot do justice to the diversity of meanings that need to be brought to bear in addressing the challenges of global environmental change. We also agree with them that environmental social sciences and humanities (ESSH) can make important contributions to global environmental change (GEC) science. However, their charge that we ignore the full range of anthropological contributions to understanding of climate change reflects a misreading of our recent Perspective in this journal (Barnes et al 2013), as we only attempted to discuss a few exemplary strands of the many contributions from anthropology to a richer understanding of climate change (for a more detailed discussion, see our forthcoming edited volume, Barnes and Dove, eds. 2015).
