Bushmeat - Digital Library

The Digital Library contains the BCTF "Research Archive" and "Projects Database", which have been under development since 2000. It includes almost 2,000 references from peer-reviewed journals, reports ('gray literature'), projects and media related to the bushmeat issue. Many references include links to full text online.

The Library can be searched with names and keywords, or you can browse for reports. Search results can be exported into Excel. To open the full record for an individual report, click on the author's name.
