8. How can indigenous & local knowledge complement biodiversity science? (Zsolt Molnár)

March 2021

Indigenous peoples and local communities are increasingly recognized for the importance of their contribution to global biodiversity knowledge. But is indigenous & local knowledge (ILK) (or, traditional ecological knowledge - TEK) vetted, in a parallel to peer review's vetting of scientific knowledge? And how does ILK add to global biodiversity knowledge, if it is typically very localized?


Zsolt Molnár helps me to explore these questions. Zsolt is a senior researcher and head of the research group on Traditional Ecological Knowledge at the Centre For Ecological Research in Hungary.
