    Abstract

    Enhancing the research practices of biophysical scientists who
    conduct research with Indigenous people or on their land is
    important for scientific, ethical, and conservation reasons. Many
    areas of high biodiversity overlap with areas of high cultural
    diversity, and many Indigenous communities own and manage
    biologically significant areas. By taking a reflective, ethical, and
    empowering approach to their research practice, scientists can
    achieve more rigorous, effective science that gains from
    indigenous knowledge and support while assisting local people to
    conserve and manage their resources. A co-participatory approach
    to conservation-relevant research with Indigenous people or on
    their land is recommended, and the implications of this approach
    compared to more narrow approaches are discussed.
