Ed. by Fikret Berkes et al.

The Canadian North is stark, white, and challenged by the intrusion of humans and their technologies, increasing needs for natural resources, and sheer elbow-room. In this collection of 18 articles, contributors describe how scholars, managers, and traditional and established communities are reacting to the changes in the landscape, including working from their experience base in sustainability and vulnerability, managing on an ecosystem level, integrating management planning, making use of policy, allowing for traditional techniques in management, regulating the effects of wildlife tourism, learning from others, dealing with boundary disputes, and encouraging participation. Distributed by the Michigan State University Press.
