Traditional knowledge and biodiversity: Can the co-evolution of natural and social systems continue?

Biological diversity (biodiversity) encompasses “the variability among living organisms from all sources including, inter alia, terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part; this includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystems” (CBD, 1992, Article 2). It is obvious that humans, as do other living beings, owe their survival and well-being to this diversity. Every production activity that we are involved in requires some “natural good or service”, be it in terms of food and beverage production systems, medicine, construction or manufacturing, marking the significance of biological diversity to our economies.
