Fig. 5. Multi-dimensional scaling plot showing the linking structure among the seven communities. The size of each node (community) is proportional to the number of fishers considered in each community; communities with high resource scarcity are shown with gray circles and communities with low resource scarcity are shown with white circles. The thickness of intercommunity links is proportional to the ratio of the measured vs. the expected number of relations. Thin line < 0.5 in black, medium line < 1 in blue, thick line > 1 in red. Ratio values less than 0.1 were omitted.
