Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK)
Examples of degraded systems
Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK)
Role in citizen scienceget them involved and recognizing how, collecting data, taking notes,
meta-data base keeps records of WHO is keeping records on what subjects
Local communities; active participants in management
Innovative- inspire and guide management solution Still very criticized
Often linked to agricultural and land systems
Year to year protection
Direct
o Control Disease and insect threats
o Minimize erosion
o Ensure food availability
Indirect
o Species diversitysacred groves in India
Sacred Groves- India
Patches of trees and natural vegetation
Protected by local communities- beliefs and rituals
Environmental Benefits
o Conservation of biology
o Recharge of aquifers
o Soil Conservation
**Because of the religious beliefs this area is protected, and is used for local rituals but it also helps
the biodiversity in the area
Threats
The disappearance of traditional belief system is leading to a loss of these areas, being invaded by exotic
species, livestock getting into the areas; people are cutting them down for fuel wood, urbanization and
development increasing in area. Sanskritizations, the religion that uses these areas, are shifting away
from nature to temple worship.
TEK Limitations
It works because it is at a local small scale. Technology can provide benefits that override TWK
constraint. The constraints focus on a set of species, not overall biodiversity, the consequences are not

Technology can provide benefits that override TWK constraint. The constraints focus on a set of species, not overall biodiversity, the consequences are not always predictable. By focusing on the local it is easier to predict the change, and respond to it. TEK cannot override external impacts, changing hunting constraints do not compensate for environmental change. Wh
