Q&A: Traditional forest knowledge is not folklore, but a resource for change

argylesock says… Here’s discussion of knowledge transfer from people who live in the Amazon forest. These people know what they’re doing. Around the world forest people, desert people, island people and other ‘uncivilised’ people know many things that people in the city-based economies should learn.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
