About this book

The management of reindeer herds in northernmost Europe has been dramatically altered by changes in the environment, largely the result of human activities. This volume investigates the conditions upon which human-reindeer relations have been based, as well as those necessary for future reindeer management. It consists of three parts:

I: Herders and Reindeer: The Cultural and Socioeconomic Dynamics of Human-Animal Relations

II: Reindeer Herding - Effects on Soils, Soil Biota, and Vegetation

III: Integrative Models for Reindeer Management: The Interface Between Social and Natural Sciences

The results of process-oriented field and laboratory studies by scientists are efficaciously supported by those from research involving herders and their experience-based knowledge. In Northern Fennoscandia and Northwest Russia the issue is not just the conservation of the natural environment of reindeer, but also the survival of the Sami, the northern indigenous people who herd them.

Contents

The volume consists of 17 chapters and is divided into the following three parts: Herders and Reindeer: The Cultural and Socio-Economic Dynamics of Human-Animal Relations. Reindeer Herding ? Effects on Soils, Soil Biota and Vegetation. Integrative Models for Reindeer Management: The Interface between Social and Natural Sciences.
