About Nicolena vonHedemann

My research interests lie at the cross section of ecology and human geography, particularly the complex social, political, and economic factors that play into landscape conservation and the impact of environmental protection on human societies.  I am interested in the proliferation of payments for ecosystem services programs as a potential method of ecological management and livelihood improvement.  My thesis research in Guatemala investigated local land user participation in national forestry incentive programs to determine if development-linked conservation provides benefits to communities involved.
