Forthcoming Special Section in BLAR 34.1 2015

The special section on ‘Urbanisation and resource management in riverine Amazônia’ brings together work by anthropologists, geographers and ethnobiologists on the connections between urbanisation and deforestation. They underline the interplay between new forms of mobility, multi-sited household survival strategies and the legal designation of indigenous territories and conservation areas in shaping the options for biodiversity management in the Amazon.
