Bennett, Sari J.Ph.D. – Economic geography

Holland, Margaret Buck, Ph.D. University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2009 
Human dimensions of global environmental change. A central goal of my work is to improve conservation policy at the global or national-scale so that it positively influences community livelihood dynamics at the local scale. The majority of my research focuses on the tropics.
