About this issue

Around the world, fields and forests are increasingly dominated by the market, mediated by science, and subjected to new modes of transnational environmental governance. This volume of RCC Perspectives presents ethnographic insights into the impacts of such environmental globalization. As agriculture seeks new methods to provide for a growing population, and as forest conservation becomes increasingly contested, local and indigenous communities must balance their needs and desires with the demands of a variety of external agents, from academics and bureaucrats to governments and international agribusinesses.
