Book description

It is being increasingly recognised that cultural and biological diversity are deeply linked and that conservation programmes should take into account the ethical, cultural and spiritual values of nature. With contributions from a range of scholars, practitioners and spiritual leaders from around the world, this book provides new insights into biocultural diversity conservation. It explores sacred landscapes, sites, plants and animals from around the world to demonstrate the links between nature conservation and spiritual beliefs and traditions. Key conceptual topics are connected to case studies, as well as modern and ancient spiritual insights, guiding the reader through the various issues from fundamental theory and beliefs to practical applications. It looks forward to the biocultural agenda, providing guidelines for future research and practice and offering suggestions for improved integration of these values into policy, planning and management.

Reviews

'Collectively, the fascinating cases in this innovative and substantial book demonstrate the importance for biologists, conservationists, and environmentalists to consider culture and religion in their research and its practical applications. This expertly and skilfully crafted publication is most useful as a reference work, a textbook for a wide range of advanced courses, and as an addition to the rapidly growing body of literature on the subject.'
