Abstract

Paper is in two sections. First, A. traces how people came to know about Nicaragua's tunu (Castilla fallax) and how Nicaragua became aware of this resource and legislated access to its forest and tree latexes. There is a discussion of the decision of Wrigley chewing gum company to invest in Nicaraguan tunu. Second, A. uses extensive field information he acquired in the 1990s to describe how tunu and chicle production operated at the local level between 1950-80. Today, synthetic substitutes are cheaper than restarting the industry. - (SLD)
