Community Atlases produced by Project Fauna

These are atlases produced by Project Fauna, a research project of Stanford University. This project worked collaboratively with 23 indigenous Wapishana communities in the Rupununi region of Guyana to investigate the relationship between indigenous cultural practices and biodiversity dynamics, including carbon. As well as several academic publications, the results were presented in atlases specific to each community involved in the project. These provide a summary of the major datasets that were created using data gathered in the field from 2007-2010,  often in map form, including information on kill-sites for important species, the location of fruiting trees, spiritual sites, and socioeconomic variables. This information is thus available to the communties to inform their land use decisions.
