Freshwater Science - Bridges: Conservation partnerships between scientists and non-profit agencies

Published On: 6/10/2014

Freshwater Science - BRIDGES cluster: The role of conservation partnerships between scientists and non-profit agencies in freshwater science and management

The latest BRIDGES cluster of articles in Freshwater Science focuses on conservation partnerships among scientists, non-profit agencies, and citizens. The first article in the cluster by Stelzer and Kashian (2014) is an introduction that contrasts the traditional model of research-based knowledge transfer and application to four alternative models: 1) participation, 2) integration, 3) learning, and 4) negotiation. The other three articles in the cluster are case studies of successful conservation partnerships involving one or more of the alternative models of knowledge transfer and application.
