Indigenous Knowledge for Biodiversity Conservation


The indigenous knowledge for biodiversity conservation has accumulateted and transmitted from generation to generation.

habitat management by traditional agriculturalists and agroforesters is relatively well know. more controversial is habita management by hunter gatherers.
another widely used traditional practice, that of rotation of harvesting pressure, would similarly contribute to landscape heterogeneity. the principle of rotation in agriculture is well know: land is periodically fallowed or “rested” and often   planted whit species that help restore soil   fertility. less well know is the use of rotation for grazing lands and for hunting and fishing grounds.

the community lands of cree groups are divided into a number of traditional hunting areas, each with a stewart in charge.

Fertility is the main function of efficiency in this cycle of continuous recycling. The proportion of nutrients not available, either in the biomass or in the ground, at a given moment, is a function of the climate


The evolution of biodiversity in space and in time to reach the current state as well as the mechanisms that promote and guarantee their persistence. Knowing how it is changing the biodiversity. The overall objective is to describe and interpret the processes responsible for the organization of current biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, and apply that knowledge to stop the deterioration of natural systems and promote their eco systemic functions. sustainably manage natural, renewable and non-renewable resources, the establishment of appropriate generation and usage models, to consolidate the areas of current occupation, restrict future settlements and prevent environmental degradation. In addition, developing mechanisms and actions aimed at creating and strengthening regional and national awareness of environmental problems in the Amazon.


We must take into account that we must conserve biodiversity because indoscriminada hunting and the destruction of trees is damaging the native ecosystem, such as is being destroyed fauna and microfauna that play a role in life very important for life and also not is this respecting indigenous rights now anyone wants to enter their habitat.

when the ecosystem is ressed or penurbed, a larger number of other species perf uffering roles in the sense that they contribute to the resilience of Variety of consequences of restricting harvests of tem. Without these understudy species resilience is reduced, gical poi lations perhaps even iost. Therefore, many ecologists argue tha osystem resilience is promoted by biodiversity conservation. If ence is the key property to be maintained to assure the Possible exauples eneration of essential ecological services to human societies, en long-term historical experience of particular ecosystems is y of vital importance
