Description: "Participatory Research in Conservation and Rural Livelihoods starts from the understanding that all people create knowledge and that the creation of sustainable livelihoods and of conditions that protect and sustain rural ecosystems are interrelated. Interdependent science, that is, science undertaken collaboratively by local and professional scientists, can create new knowledge to achieve conservation goals. Local experts and professional researchers demonstrate that interdependent science can produce more accurate and locally appropriate data. Conservation scientists and practitioners will both benefit from reading this book."
