The Lari soils project in Peru - a methodology for combining cognitive and behavioural research


, : The Lari soils project in Peru - a methodology for combining cognitive and behavioural research. The cultural dimension of development: indigenous knowledge systems: 71-81

A methodology for combining cognitive and behavioural research developed during the Andean soils management investigation is presented. The method involves teamwork, construction of rule-based decision models using expert system computer programs, and formal tests for assessing the relation between the cognitive and behavioural models.
