what is ETHNOECOLOGY? 

Ethnoecology is the study of people (ethnos) and their lived environments (ecology). Specifically, we consider how people utilize, relate to, and experience the natural world. A key feature of ethnoecological research is understanding the role of history and culture in shaping the structure and function of ecosystems. This is used to challenge settler colonial narratives and power dynamics in policy and scientific research.
