On the history of the "new" journal Revue d’ethnoécologie, read its first article (in French) : Du Jatba-Revue d’ethnobiologie à la Revue d’ethnoécologie (Serge Bahuchet, vol. 2012, n°1).
Lorsqu’Auguste Chevalier (1873-1956) fonde en 1921 la Revue de botanique appliquée (RBA), c’est la pleine euphorie de la recherche des plantes utiles, notamment coloniales. Trente ans plus tard, en 1954, le Journal d’agronomie tropicale et de botanique appliquée (JATBA) la remplace […]
Revue d’ethnoécologie, in Open Access.
The Revue d’ethnoécologie is a biannual online journal.
It publishes original scientific papers and short communications in the broad field of ethnoecology, i.e. the relationship between human societies and their natural environment, in historical, intercultural, comparative, and geographical perspectives. By natural environment, we mean other living species of animals and plants, ecosystems, their processing, management or preservation.
We encourage researchers to submit articles, including those presenting the results of interdisciplinary researches, linking the cultural and environmental factors in the study of human societies, especially with specific field studies, focusing on knowledge and practices on biodiversity and the environment, techniques and their evolution, without neglecting their importance for scientific, social, but also political issues.
We also welcome proposal on "traditional" agriculture and livestock, agrobiodiversity, techniques to deal with natural resources, and of course the traditional and local knowledge, classification and categorization of natural objects. Articles proposing methodological contributions will also be welcome.
What is preferred here is not the study or the discipline but "object" : human societies and their environment, from a social point of view. Therefore, manuscripts may come from various disciplines such as ethnoecology, ethnobiology, ethnology, social and cultural anthropology, cultural geography, human ecology, ecological anthropology, political ecology, agronomy, economics, history, ethnobotany, etc., as long as the cultural approach to study the relation to the environment is apparent.
