Mental models in rangeland research, communication and management

Mental models in rangeland research, communication and management

Rangeland Journal 20(1): 77-91

There are disagreements among pastoralists, researchers, management agencies and other users of rangeland resources about how rangeland systems work, and how they should be valued, used and managed. The psychological concept of mental models helps explain how individuals and groups come to view the same ecological system so differently, and why communication among people holding different views is difficult.
