Herders and Invasive Species in India

(p.249) Chapter 10 The Uniqueness of the Everyday
Climate Cultures

Rajindra K. Puri

Yale University Press

This chapter approaches climate change through the quotidian response of herders in India to an invasive species, Lantana camara, whose proliferation some believe is linked to changing precipitation patterns. Puri uses this as a window into understanding human decision-making in the face of change. The chapter illustrates the value of a focus on everyday activities as a methodology for investigating adaptation to climate change impacts.
