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.
