Show Summary Details


Social network analysis (SNA) studies relations between persons, organizations, or other social groups, mapping and measuring them in order to better understand human behavior. SNA has increasingly been applied to understanding how knowledge is shared among groups involved in managing ecosystems such as fisheries, nature reserves, and urban parks. For practical managers, SNA helps identify knowledgeable people to include in resource management discussions.
