Abstract: The chapter looks at the kind of information needed by Aboriginal landholders, and what kind of communication that would best provide this. It outlines some of the conventional ways in which scientists pass information to Aboriginal groups, and identifies mismatches between these, also identifying the types of communication processes that Aboriginal people prefer. This chapter includes the following sections: The need for better communication (b) Usual methods of communication (c) Research partnerships (d) Warlpiri Land Claim & Mala Research a brief case study.
