  • Agroforestry ; Community ; Forest ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; Himalaya ; Management ; Mountain ; Nepal
  • AA. analyze the different management systems of timur, a medicinal plant regularly traded with India, in Nepalese forests. Four different management systems on open-access state lands, two different types of community-controlled lands, and private
  • lands are discussed. AA. found increasing management intensity correlated highly with increased market price ; however, the effects of supply and demand factors could not be generalized. - (SLD)

  • Aborigines ; Australia ; Community ; Decision making process ; Environmental management ; Land ; Management ; Regionalization
  • The AA. examine the contribution of the Natural Heritage Trust to the management of Indigenous lands in Australia. The data presented show that the land management needs of indigenous communities have been poorly accomodated by the NHT. The programs
  • Land management on semi-arid hillsides in eastern Kenya : learning from farmers' diverse practices
  • Crop ; Farm ; Kenya ; Land ; Land management ; Semi-arid area ; Soil conservation ; Water management
  • Wishing to place indigenous soil and water conservation (ISWC) in the context of land management, the AA. explore the interactions between ISWC, cropping, and crop protection practices. They conducted a field study in the Mbeere District, located
  • in the semi-arid footslopes of mount Kenya, and found many indigenous crop protection practices that can be combined with ISWC. They also found that there were constraints associated with the techniques that needed to be addressed to improve land management

  • The experience of buffalo hunting trips with Aboriginal men in central Arnhem Land is used as a point of departure to consider the relationships between Aboriginal people and megaherbivores, and to explore the complexity of feral animal management
  • in cross-cultural settings. The enquiry raises the question of the cultural conception of feral animals. The failure to continue control programs and inadequate consultation with Aboriginal landowners meant that today's land managers are once again faced
  • with conflicting views about controlling feral buffalo populations on Aboriginal land and within National Parks like Kakadu.

  • of recent developments in land cover classification and land cover change lead into discussions on environmental management and environmental understanding. Finally, a brief summary of general developments in the field of remote sensing is provided.
  • Given the importance of land cover to the field of remote sensing and, in particular, the many physical geographical applications of remote sensing, this progress report will focus on recent developments in land cover research. Initially, reviews

  • and associated land change. Results reveal a positive response to land pressure, with expansion of both market tree crops and irrigated rice fields. Exogenous policies may not have their desired effect in Andapa.
