Traditional Knowledge in Social-Ecological Systems


The special feature of the Ecology and Society Journal focuses on international perspectives of traditional knowledge in social-ecological systems. It features 11 contributions, covering issues of conservation, ecosystem management, and governance in arctic, temperate, and tropical environments. These articles reflect on the difficulties, but also the potential to be found, in combining knowledge, institutional arrangements, and cultural foundations of traditional and local societies with contemporary society. Several of the articles describe co-management and adaptive co-management of biodiversity and ecosystem dynamics in social-ecological systems
