Human Impacts on Amazonia - The Role of Traditional Ecological Knowledge in Conservation and Development

Human Impacts on Amazonia - The Role of Traditional Ecological Knowledge in Conservation and Development The Role of Traditional Ecological Knowledge in Conservation and Development POSEY, Darrell

From the pre-Columbian era to the present, native Amazonians have shaped the land around them, emphasizing utilization, conservation, and sustainability. These priorities stand in stark contrast to colonial and contemporary exploitation of Amazonia by outside interests. With essays from environmental scientists, botanists, and anthropologists, this volume explores the various effects of human development on Amazonia. The contributors argue that by protecting and drawing on local knowledge and values, further environmental ruin can be avoided.
