Written from a multidisciplinary, systems perspective this book focuses on science and knowledge-based natural resource management. It clarifies methods for dealing with social, economic and ecological dynamics and uncertainty, and gives explanations of the usefulness of biophysical and economic simulation models and information management technologies: GIS, remote sensing, decision support-systems, and computer animation. There is also a discussion on the role of local communities and collaborative decision making methods in designing and implementing management strategies.
