Science Communication in Ecology: Developing Country Perspectives
Science communication in ecology is vital to dissemination of information about the biosphere and human well-being. To communicate therefore is to share information with others by speaking, writing, moving your body or using other signals .A review has been carried out on the ''Science Communication in Ecology: Developing Country Perspectives''. The various aspects of science communication in developing countries as it obtains in other parts of the world have been succinctly discussed. The article concludes that science education and science communication in particular need to be supported from diverse stakeholders given its funding and technological as well as policy challenges.
