The paper is Junior’s first PhD publication, great effort and a very important paper
Warm greetings to Junior for publishing his first PhD paper, which is now out (early online) in Trends in Ecology & Evolution and may be of interest to many of you. The paper discusses a new concept we call Backyard Conservation in traditionally owned lands and presents a case study from Junior’s community on the island of Bougainville, PNG. See link to the paper: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1fnJ8cZ3WuSnU and pdf attached.
The TREE Editor has decided to start a new series and special issue in TREE focused on Local and Indigenous ecological knowledge, which is relevant to conservation work around the world and will come out in January, which is an important and timely initiative.
