"Land Use, Forest Composition and Social Dependence on Forest Products of a Traditional Miao Village: a Case Study in Guizhou, China." Jin Yin, Ph.D. Candidate, Environmental Science

The Miao, an ethnic minority people, who predominantly live in the forested regions of sub-tropical southern China have accumulated centuries of traditional knowledge in forest management. The discussion and study documents the land use, forest composition and social and economic dependence of a remote Miao village that still retains its traditions. The village is located within a National Ecological Reserve in Leishan County, Guizhou Province, in southwest China.
