Incorporating indigenous knowledge (IK) is crucial to effective development. This global research-level book on IK and natural resources management addresses cutting edge issues relating to soil management and land degradation, weed and pest control, crop breeding and yields, agro-biodiversity conservation, food production and marketing, climate change adaptation, forest use and agroforestry. It also includes discussion of methodological issues such as IK's integration into agricultural science and technology, technology innovation and adoption, systematic approaches to local management, integration of social and ecological processes, participatory methods and 'citizen' science, use of videos, the role of international agencies, power dynamics and gender issues.
