This book is a concise and comprehensive introduction to the world of sea angling. It covers the two main aspects of the sport: fishing from shore and boat fishing. A visual gallery provides information about the major species that the salt-water angler is likely to encounter, from the common cod and bass to the more challenging blue shark and thornback ray. Helpful advice is given on recognition, size potential and feeding habits, as well as top tips for catching fish. Separate sections deal with the use of natural and artificial baits, and the different types available. The book is an essential guide for both the beginner and the more experienced salt-water angler.
Empirical in character, this book analyses the society-nature interaction of the Tsimane', a rural indigenous community in the Bolivian Amazon. Following a common methodological framework, the material and energy flow (MEFA) approach, it gives a detailed account of the biophysical exchange relations the community entertains with its natural environment: the socio-economic use of energy, materials, land and time. Equally so, the book provides a deeper insight into the local base of sociometabolic transition processes and their inherent dynamics of change. The local community described in this publication stands for the many thousands of rural systems in developing countries that, in light of an ever more globalising world, are currently steering a similar - but maybe differently-paced - development course. This book presents insightful methodological and conceptual advances in the field of sustainability science and provides a vital reader for students and researchers of human ecology, ecological anthropology, and environmental sociology. It equally contributes to improving professional development work methods.
