Editorial Reviews

Review

"A fresh way of thinking about how scientists approach indigenous environmental knowledge and how researchers can apply the study of IK to issues surrounding sustainable development. . . . An important contribution to the way we think about and conduct research with local communities." —Indigenous Knowledge and Development Monitor"A rich resource, a snapshot of the state of the global commons at a moment of crisis for indigenous peoples (and all of us)." —Rhetoric and Public Affairs"A wealth of interesting information . . . useful to anyone interested in bridging the still existing gap between cultural and natural sciences." —Journal of Ethnopharmacology

From the Inside Flap

The re-emerging field of ethnoecology offers a promising way to document and analyze human-environment interactions. This collection brings the discipline into sharp focus, conveying local understandings of environments and proposing a way of looking at the relationship between humans and the natural world that emphasizes the importance of cognition in shaping behavior. Case studies by international experts explore the varied views of scholars on the human dimension of conversation and the different views of local peoples regarding their own environments. Filled with peoples' voices from North and South America, Africa, and Asia, these cases cover a range of issues: natural resource conservation and sustainable development, the relationship between local knowledge and biodiversity, the role of the commons in development, and the importance of diversity and equity in environmental management. As the only volume to address the status of this increasingly multidisciplinary field—especially as it relates to the differential power of multiple stakeholders—Ethnoecology: Situated Knowledge/Located Lives is intended for a wide range of specialists not only in social and natural sciences but also in agricultural studies. It conveys the overriding importance of this powerful methodological approach in providing insiders' perspectives on their environment and how they manage it. CONTENTS
