Many ethnobotanical studies have shown differences in the knowledge and practices held by men and women. Using ethnographic fieldwork, a survey, and secondary data from three different areas in Spain, this study shows a geographical pattern in women’s and men’s relations with wild edible plants. In the case studies from Southern Spain, Doñana, and...

Full-text available
Customary commons are today considered as a key management regime for human well-being, the conservation of the environment and global sustainability. Holistic ethnography of such communal systems is among the best tools to unveil their indigenous conceptualizations of sustainability, conceptualizations which are emerging as a new conservation para...
Article
Full-text available
There is a growing scientific awareness that pastoral commons are a positive management regime. Nevertheless, these are undergoing swift degradation processes. Our main Hypothesis is that participative processes of Heritagization have important assets that can contribute to solving key problems faced by Mediterranean pastoral commons. The main Goal...

Despite growing policy interest in the conservation values of territories and areas conserved by Indigenous peoples and local communities (abbreviated to 'ICCAs') at the global level, our understanding of the ICCAs in East Africa is meagre at best. We explore the existence of ICCAs in East Africa, focusing on the case of the Daasanach pastoralists...

While the number of projects that claim to conduct participatory environmental monitoring (PEM) is growing, “participation” continues to be translated into very different practices. We performed a systematic review of PEM projects reported in peer-reviewed journals (n = 146) to explore the main ways in which participation is operationalized and who...
Article
Full-text available
Numerous authors from various disciplines have underlined the importance of Indigenous Peoples' and Community Conserved Territories and Areas (ICCAs) for assuring the livelihoods of local populations whilst conserving the environment. The agdal is probably Morocco's best example of such an institution. Nevertheless they have always existed within t...

In this article, I examine how local religious traditions and environmental management interact with each other, as well as how both relate to new globalizing influences such as emerging State structures and ideologies, mass media, migrations, market integration, tourism, NGOs, modernist conceptions of nature, and present Islamic movements. Through...

The alliance between the natural and social sciences has proven to be a successful analytical approach to understand and conserve ecosystems worldwide, while seeing humans as key agents within these (1971 Man and the Biosphere Programme, 1972 Stockholm Declaration, 1992 Rio Conference). In this context, authors from various areas of expertise have...
Article
Full-text available
In this article we will argue that although humans always migrated and mated, transgressions of socio-cultural group boundaries not necessarily engendered new categories of classification for mixed offspring. We will show, instead, that the presence or absence of mixed categories depends on the socio-political circumstances, ontologies, systems of...

This chapter examines Moroccan agdal, a centuries-old traditional Berber system of environmental management that consists of rules prohibiting access to communal natural resources during a certain period in order to enable their regeneration. It is an ingenious system of agro-pastoral land rotation, closely linked to a complex and evolving cosmolog...

Full-text available
This study examines the multiple dimensions of the agdal system, a traditional Berber form of environmental management that regulates access to communal natural resources so as to allow the regeneration of natural resources. In fact, this ingenious system of agro-pastoral land rotation is ultimately beneficial for the conservation of the bio-physic...

Die Proteste des »Arabischen Frühlings« verdeutlichen zweierlei: einerseits die grundlegenden Unzufriedenheiten und Unsicherheiten, die in den vergangenen 30 Jahren im Gefüge neoliberaler Globalisierung entstanden sind. Andererseits entlarven sie unsere Unwissenheit über lokale Alltagsbezüge, die trotz einer digitalen Informationsflut sogar zu wach...

We have developped a research with a holist spirit, about the small community of the Ait Ikis agro-pastors of the high valley of the Zat (High Atlas of Marrakech), and how their relation to the territory of Yagour, managed by the agdal institution, has changed in the last century. By doing this, we have tested our three intial hypotheses: 1- The tr...

Notre problématique de recherche porte sur les mutations, durant le dernier siècle, de la relation à l’environnement d’une petite communauté d’agro-pasteurs du Haut Atlas de Marrakech, les Aït Ikis. Cette population montagnarde d’environ 700 habitants dépende de plusieurs espaces mais très spécialement du Yagour, un pâturage de 70 km² étagé entre 2...

This study explores the association between individual beliefs in local Islamic Saints in the High Atlas of Morocco and the use of the environment. This exploration is done within the framework of a traditional institution of natural resource management, based on the regulations (called Agdal) of access to common pastoral resources. Research method...

Transhumance as a way of life remains widely spread across a number of regions in Morocco. Work conducted in two transhumance places in the High Atlas (Oukaïmeden and Yagour), backed by studies made for other Moroccan regions allow us to show the strongly heuristic character of an anthropological look at trashumance. Transhumance is thus portrayed...

En mi presentación subrayaré la importancia de las instituciones religiosas tradicionales del territorio de montaña del Yagur en la conservación de los actuales ecosistemas sub-alpinos. Las instituciones religiosas tradicionales apoyan al sistema agdal, que consiste en la prohibición de acceder a los pastos de alta montaña durante tres ó cuatro mes...
