Peer-reviewed Publications by BCTF

Science is the basis for all BCTF actions and recommendations. Participating in the scientific process involves secondary (library) research but also contributing synthesis pieces for major journals and meetings to bring awareness to the various disciplines able to contribute research or implement solutions to the bushmeat crisis. Below is a selection of publications on bushmeat by BCTF staff and/or resulting from BCTF collaboration.
