Reindeer management in conflict and co-operation: a geographic land use study from northernmost Sweden

, : Reindeer management in conflict and co-operation: a geographic land use study from northernmost Sweden. Nomadic Peoples ( 32): 65-80

This article presents the results of a three year study concerning reindeer herding and its related land-use problems in northernmost Sweden. Reindeer herding belongs to the extensive type of agriculture, referred to internationally as nomadic herding.
