The Matses Inventory.
Cooper, Henry S. F., Jr.
Natural History, v109 n7 p84-86 Sep 2000
In northeastern Peru, U.S. mammalogists are tapping the knowledge of the indigenous Matses people to catalog the fauna of the rainforest. One zoologist turned linguist has recruited Matses research assistants; together they are creating a classroom text on mammals in Matses, which will help preserve both local ethnobiological knowledge and the Matses language.
