Sample text

Complex agro-ecosystems are managed by farmers based on their understanding of ecosystem functions and services even though farmers may not explicitly manage with knowledge of these terms or concepts. Agriculture and resource management are linked processes for rural producers (Alcorn 1989; Padoch and Pinedo-Vasquez 2006). Rural producers focus on systems and processes within them, more than on structure and components of the system. For example, açaí palm extractors in the Brazilian Amazon know to keep some emergent hardwood trees in the stand to attract pollinators and seed dispersers (Brondízio and Siqueira 1997).

The third population of important actors in rural development and environmental management includes researchers, and these come in two types: technical research scientists who engage in experimental research and field trials directly related to natural resource management and agriculture; and academic researchers in both the natural and social sciences, who focus on topics such as ecosystem structure and function, local ecological knowledge, and rural production and extraction systems, among others.

Most ecological research is based in reductionist science, examining single components and simplified dynamics in ecosystems, rather than on systems research (Ison et al. 1997). The stringent rules of reductionist scientific inquiry, isolating causal factors and mechanisms, render much of the research information too narrow to be effectively applied in complex ecological systems. In the case of ecosystem-based management for conservation and poverty reduction, the utility of the scientific and technical information is only as good as its relevance to local people and conditions (Scoones and Thompson 1994).
