e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Traditional forest knowledge and sustainable forestry: A north-east India perspective


Forests in the Asian context are part of a cultural landscape linked to livelihood concerns of traditional societies particularly those living close to nature and natural resources. From a typical forestry management perspective, timber extraction has always been a priority. However, in the present day context and circumstances, where forest resources are rapidly being degraded in the Asian tropics, the issues involved are more about sustainable forestry for economic benefits (timber and non-timber forest products) to the society, and the conservation of biodiversity through a protected area network. An understanding of the ways in which forest resources are perceived by the forest dwellers on the one hand and by the forest managers on the other is critical for designing strategies for sustainable forestry in the Asian context. There is an increasing realization that today we need to move beyond formal knowledge based on silvicultural issues, and find appropriate linkages with traditional forest knowledge generated over generations by forest dwellers through an experiential process of trial and error. Strengthening linkages between knowledge systems using community participatory management approaches is now seen as critical for sustainable forestry. (C) 2007 Published by Elsevier B.V.
