Nature Knowledge: Ethnoscience, Cognition, and Utility
Glauco Sanga, Gherardo Ortalli
Berghahn Books, 2003 - Science - 417 pages
Numerous scholars, in particular anthropologists, historians, economists, linguists, and biologists, have, over the last few years, studied forms of knowledge and use of nature, and of the ways nature can be protected and conserved. Some of the most prominent scholars have come together in this volume to reflect on what has been achieved so far, to compare the work carried out in the past, to discuss the problems that have emerged from different research projects, and to map out the way forward.
