Subject: Anthropological Linguistics: On Biocultural Diversity by Maffi (ed.)


Members of this list may be interested to know about Luisa Maffi's
edited book On Biocultural Diversity: Linking language, Knowledge, and
the Environment, coming out from Smithsonian Institution Press in
May. The book is based in part on the international working conference
"Endangered Languages, Endangered Knowledge, Endangered Environments"
held in Berkeley, California, in 1996. It brings together an
interdisciplinary and multicultural group of researchers,
practitioners, and activists to discuss the common threats to the
world's biological, cultural, and linguistic diversity. In addition to
theory and case studies, book chapters deal with indigenous peoples'
cultural, linguistic, and traditional resource rights and outline
action needed to counter biocultural diversity loss. For content and
ordering information, see
http://ucjeps.herb.berkeley.edu/Maffi-book.html

Also, members of the N.G.O. Terralingua: Partnerships for Linguistic
and Biological Diversity (http://www.terralingua.org), of which Maffi
is President, collaborated with W.W.F. International on the project
"Indigenous and Traditional Peoples of the World and Ecoregion
Conservation". The project yielded a cross-mapping of the world's
ethnolinguistic groups onto the world's ecoregions and a report
outlining an integrated approach to conserving the world's biological
and cultural diversity. The report contains recommendations on best
practices in working with indigenous peoples in ecoregion
conservation, with a special focus on issues of traditional ecological
knowledge and use and management of traditional resources. Both the
map and the report are available on the web at
