It is divided into sections. Section 1 introduces the reader to discourses on herder knowledge of rangeland management and Section 2 gives the reader a theoretical perspective focusing on related studies done else where, the consensus and contradictions observed. Section 3-6 focus on the methods and materials employed in the data collection, findings, discussions and conclusions.
