Abstract: "The present article contrasts the Unasylva discussion of the concept of pluralism with the notion of 'polycentrism', developed by Vincent Ostrom and his colleagues at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, United States. The article goes onto discuss some practical expressions of the polycentrism concept as seen in a recent study on watershed management in Costa Rica."
