[chuck] in Science, West Kalimantan, traditional resource use

There's a lot going on in this image. At first glance, it's just a shot of a Dayak rice field in West Kalimantan.  But then there's the home garden with the bananas and fruit trees in the center of the shot, and the hill dipterocarp forests in the background that are loaded with tembawang (I know because I hiked up there). Every plant community is being managed in some way.  Agriculture, horticulture, forest management.  Truly a diverse portfolio. [NOTE: This is an old slide and it didn't scan so well.  Sorry].
