We provide here a list of our papers on the micro-ecological aspects of contact and segregation. Tredoux and Dixon (submitted), Dixon, Tredoux and Clack (2005) and Dixon (2001) introduce some our project’s central themes. The other papers provide illustrative case studies located across a range of contexts.
