This work adds an ecological and evolutionary perspective to the study of the relations
between humans and natural resources. The first to cover this subject in English, this
text studies the branch of ethnobiology that analyzes the evolutionary history of human
behavioral patterns and human understanding about biological resources, considering
the historical and contemporary aspects that influence these behaviors at both the
individual and societal levels.
Ethnobiology aggregates different theoretical, epistemological, and methodological
perspectives. While some of these perspectives ignore the ecological and evolutionary
nature of ethnobiology, the conventional ecological science insufficiently considers
human aspects as topics of theoretical interest. Through exploring theories in
ethnobiology, this work examines the interrelationships between people and nature,
considering the forces that helped shape this inextricable link.
