About Benedict J. Colombi

My specialization lies at the interface of Indigenous natural resource management, cultural and environmental sustainability, and globalization, and I am writing several articles and developing a book based on recent research with the Nez Perce Tribe about large dams, Pacific salmon, and the world-economy in the Columbia River Basin.  I also sustain interests in expanding my research to include Southwestern watersheds and combining field sites in Russia, Canada, Norway, Tasmania, Chile, and the United States.
