|Title:||Woodland Polyphony||Authors:||Buttimer, Anne||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10754||Date:||May-1992||Online since:||2019-06-06T11:05:38Z||Abstract:||Some Swedish contributions to a research exchange between Sweden and Canada concerning human perspectives on woodland are described. The project sought historical and cross-cultural insights into different perceptions, uses and behaviour with respect to woodland among Academia (scientists and humanists), Officialdom (managerial authorities), and Folk (ordinary users of woodland, e.g. foresters and forest farmers, natives and lumbermen, tourists and participants in popular movements). Contrasts and tensions among these three worlds of discourse are highlighted and a case is made for research and reflection on the perennial interests of identity, order, niche and horizon, as catalysts for dialogue on sustainable use of woodland globally.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Kluwer Academic Publishers||Start page:||177||End page:||198||Copyright (published version):||1992 Kluwer Academic Publishers||Keywords:||Woodlands; Sustainable development; Swedish forestry; Environmentalism||DOI:||10.1177/027046769301300435||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Svedin, U., Aniansson, B.
