About this product
- DescriptionSacred Ecology examines bodies of kwledge held by indigeus and other rural peoples around the world, and asks how we can learn from this kwledge and ways of kwing. Berkes explores the importance of local and indigeus kwledge as a complement to scientific ecology, and its cultural and political significance for indigeus groups themselves. This third edition further develops the point that traditional kwledge as process, rather than as content, is what we should be examining. It has been updated with about 150 new references, and includes an extensive list of web resources through which instructors can access additional material and further illustrate many of the topics and themes in the book. Winner of the Ecological Society of America's 2014 Sustainability Science Award.
