The most common theme related to the understanding of people's perspectives regarding conservation (32%, n = 54), followed by the assessment of conservation and livelihoods practices (21%, n = 35), examination of challenges and impacts of resource management interventions (19%, n = 33) and documenting the value of indigenous knowledge systems.

systems with high biodiversity, than in those with medium or low biodiversity. Thus, the eco-indigenous agriculture of the Aymara make a greater contribution to food security, promotes more biodiversity, and preserves the environment better than modern conventional agriculture. The Aymara are by no means unique, in that respect. On the other hand, a value measured in monetary terms can make the values for biodiversity more visible to a larger audience (TEEB, b) and, more importantly, promote comparability between biodiversity conservation and the economic world, thereby facilitating the integration of environmental management into political decisions (Bräuer, ).
Yet national food systems are supplying less diverse food. This is reflected in diets that are monotonous and based on a few staple crops, especially in low-income countries where access to nutrient-rich sources of food, such as animal source foods, fruits and vegetables is a challenge. Overlapping areas of biology, including ecology, sustainable agriculture, and conservation biology, are critically important in addressing the needs of developing countries and must be given greater support. More support must also be given to research that integrates economics, the social sciences, and biodiversity conservation.

Biotechnological and other value adding options provide an opportunity for valorising the biodiversity and associated knowledge systems.
In the absence of this value addition, the erosion of Author: Anil K. Gupta. Community-based biodiversity management (CBM) is a participatory approach to empower farmers as well as the local institutions for managing biodiversity for social, economic, and environmental.
Communities have an important role to play in biodiversity conservation. However, community-based conservation as a panacea, like government-based conservation as a panacea, ignores the necessity of managing commons at multiple levels, with vertical and horizontal interplay among institutions.
The study of conservation in a multilevel world can. The Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation and sustainable use for improved human nutrition and well-being project sought to address the issue by promoting knowledge of the importance of biodiversity in ensuring the availability of high-quality, nutritious foods.
as well as the economic empowerment of its people. Biodiversity, traditional knowledge, poverty reduction all are topical today for the linkages that exist on the ground where communities have time and again proved that their knowledge and practices outweigh the risks associated with technology-based interventions to.
The study provides comprehensive information about eroding traditional knowledge and biodiversity conservation practices. This study could be a pilot to strengthen the conservation practices and sustainable utilization of frequently used bioresources by understanding the traditional knowledge system and conservation ethics of tribal communities.
Traditional and local knowledge is the collective body of knowledge, innovations, and practices of indigenous peoples and local communities worldwide (UN ).In this context, “traditional” implies that the knowledge is gained through extensive experience in a specific place, landscape, or ecosystem and carried from one generation to the next (Curci ).
Bythe traditional knowledge, innovations and practices of indigenous and local communities relevant for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, and their customary use of biological resources, are respected, subject to national legislation and relevant international obligations, and fully integrated and reflected in the.
The role for indigenous and local knowledge systems in governance for sustainability. Governance of ecosystems is an enormous challenge in the Anthropocene, characterized by complex interactions and feedbacks of human action and global environmental change [1, 2].Transdisciplinary processes are needed to craft knowledge that is legitimate.
Women have developed unique bodies of knowledge, skills and experience related to plants, fish and animals, wild and domesticated, and their habitats. They have conservation and sustainability values.
This book documents—and draws attention to—the geographic scale of the biodiversity declines associated with arable habitats in Europe, and to suggest measures that could help alleviate these declines in cultivated habitats that cover a large area of the earth’s surface.
This series of books is published by Earthscan in association with Bioversity International. The aim of the series is to review the current state of knowledge in topical issues associated with agricultural biodiversity, to identify gaps in our knowledge base, to synthesize lessons learned and to propose future research and development actions.

Traditional Knowledge Systems for Biodiversity Conservation by Deep Narayan Pandey 1 Introduction. Traditional knowledge is vital for sustainability of natural resources including forests, water, and agroecosystems across landscape continuum spanning from households through farms, village, commons and wilderness.
Traditional knowledge plays an important role in the conservation of biodiversity and its traditional uses: • Indian Systems of Medicine (Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani) are part of the official healthcare system in India, and depend on a diversity of biological resources and traditional knowledge.In this Knowledge Portal topic, recent publications on practices and approaches to make food systems ecologically (more) sustainable are presented.
Farmers and other value chain actors innovate using practices that improve their adaptive capacity to climate change and to the increasing scarcity of natural resources. They may (gradually) apply agro-ecological or ‘climate .Biodiversity, Adaptive Physiology, and Conservation (CRC Marine Biology Series) book because this book offers you rich information and knowledge.
