Nature is Culture
Indigenous knowledge and socio-cultural aspects of trees and forests in non-European cultures
The startling message of this book is that the so-called virgin forests of the world owe much to their symbiotic relationship with the indigenous peoples who live in and on the margins of the forests. Examples of forests are taken from Asia, Africa and South America, thus reflecting the global nature of the phenomenon. The book's conclusions will have far-reaching implications for all who are concerned with the conservation of forests and their indigenous human population. This book is published in the Indigenous Knowledge and Development Series.
