ASB Lecture Notes

 

In this series of lecture notes we want to help young researchers and students, via the lecturers and professors that facilitate their education and training, to grasp natural resource management issues as complex as that of land use change in the margins of tropical forests. We believe that the issues, approaches, concepts and methods of the ASB program will be relevant to a wider audience. We have tried to repackage our research results in the form of these lecture notes, including non-ASB material where we thought this might be relevant. The series of lecture notes can be used as a basis for a full course, but the various parts can also 'stand alone' in the context of more specialised courses.
