Front Cover
Taylor & Francis US, Dec 1, 1998 - Nature - 200 pages
People have always managed their critical natural resources with care and respect. However, the definition of what is and is not perceived as a resource critical for their survival varies by time, place and culture. Documenting some of the perceptions, strategies and actions of some natural resource agencies as they seek to respond to the changed reality influencing their policies and practices, this book provides ample evidence that the traditional models guiding natural resource agencies and professionals have eŚceeded the point of declining return.
