“Returning” Ethnobiological Research to the Communities

Part of the Springer Protocols Handbooks book series (SPH)

Abstract

The “return” of ethnobiological investigations to the communities involved in the data collection has been a recurring theme on the world stage. In this chapter, we present a brief discussion on this subject. Rather than trying to indicate certain paths, the idea of this chapter is to provoke a discussion on the subject. We will address proposals for the “return” of research that are divided into actions that do not depend on third parties and actions that necessarily depend on support from organizations and/or institutions, especially those involved in research and development.

Key words

  • “Benefit”
  • “Give back”
  • “Return”
  • Local knowledge
  • Traditional knowledge
