Biocultural Diversity Conservation: A Global Sourcebook is a comprehensive source of information for researchers, professionals, policy makers, indigenous and other local organizations, international agencies and non- governmental organizations (NGOs), funders, media and others.
In this book, we review the theory of biocultural diversity and why it is relevant for conservation. We then present and analyze the 45 projects, highlighting their methodological diversity. This variety of approaches to biocultural diversity conservation, adapted to different contexts, reflects the biocultural diversity of life itself. It confers individual and collective strength to these integrated conservation efforts. In our analysis of the projects, we look at the factors that foster or threaten the integrated conservation of biological and cultural diversity. Drawing from the projects, we provide lessons learned and recommendations for how to further develop and strengthen the biocultural approach to conservation.
