Between sustainability science and ethnoecology, there are many points in common: inter/transdisciplinarity, co-production of knowledge, identification of socio-environmental problems, education and awareness, but they stand out through a few dimensions. I would like to engage discussion between specialists of each domain, in the sharing of experience, dialogue and respect to imagine possible cross-fertilisation.

I think that the covid-19 will help us to better instill in those around us the experience that distinguishes us, and we did not have the luck to disclose it by force to run behind work and take care of the professional side more than the side familial societal, then this virus has given us a chance to discover and know who we are in this globalization which is beating down on societies which have lost their bearings. Returning to your question I believe that ethnocology can help societies to overcome this covid-19 by reflecting on our former life which gives us values transmitted by word of mouth, remaining faithful to our religion which is the pillar fundamental of an authentic education, all the speeches that the media keeps repeating have already been identified in the Muslim religion which gives added value for cleanliness of all kinds@

I am almost certain of the first photo to be Sorghum bicolor L. What is the species of second photo? Sorghum ........... The local people gave different vernacular names and I guess these are also two different Sorghum species. Right?
The fourth and fifth photos are from the same species; It is naturally occurring and also cultivated, harvested and sold by local people specially in northern Ghana.

Is not clear for me if is it possible to research local or indigenous knowledge about environment (collective and millenary wisdom) without risk of "paving the way" to biopiracy. How can participatory action research "make science" without publishing "findings"?
Relevant answer
Answer
One way is to keep published findings within the community, by creating books and/ or databases that are only accessible to the community you are working with which can help them preserve traditional knowledge through records of names, techniques, uses etc. Another approach is benefit sharing agreements, but then if findings are published they can be used by other people.

At least in some Spanish territories people used to consider high mountain plants to be more effective than lowlands ones (regarding medicinal plants), even being the same species. I would like to know if this is extensive to other territories and, if possible, to know any reference on the subject.
Relevant answer
Answer
Most of the secondary metabolites that are present in plants are an outcome of stress response- adverse weather, disease, pests etc. High mountain plants or alpine vegetation is exposed to cold weather, lower water uptake hence water stress and so on. All these factors may contribute to higher accumulation of secondary metabolites and many of them may have therapeutic properties.
