This text, sponsored by UNESCO, provides a critical evaluation of the sacred groves from a variety of perspectives: ecological, social, anthropological and cultural attributes of the sacred groves; spatial dimensions of the sacred, leading to species- and landscape-level analysis, determining ecosystem/langscape level functional attributes; the whole issue of managing the sacred in the contemporary climate of declining natural resources, land degradation and rehabilitation ecology; and management related policy implications.
