Hello Ecology and The Environment Readers!
Today we explore that if we make local people partners for research in ecology can enhance the quality of ecological research. Previously, researchers were not ready to feel the need for local people and to make them their own partners.
A new study finds out that damage to environmental quality and risk of conservation of species can be truly faced by enhancing the capabilities of local people. Traditional ecological knowledge can greatly help conserve species.
The social-environmental conflicts should be addressed in a way that what are the suggestions and needs of local people. There is always a lack of dialogue between ecologists and local people.
This study is recently published in Perspectives in Ecology and Conservation.
