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
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. As with nomadism in many other countries, the freedom of movement for Swedish reindeer herding has lessened due to several types of exploitation.
