Note Editore

Ethnozoology: Animals In Our Lives represents the first book about this discipline, providing a discussion on key themes on human-animal interactions and their implications, along with recent major advances in research.

Humans share the world with a bewildering variety of other animals, and have interacted with them in different ways. This variety of interactions (both past and present) is investigated through ethnozoology, which is a hybrid discipline structured with elements from both the natural and social sciences, as it seeks to understand how humans have perceived and interacted with faunal resources throughout history.

In a broader context, ethnozoology, and its companion discipline, ethnobotany, form part of the larger body of the science of ethnobiology. In recent years, the importance of ethnozoological/ethnobiological studies has increasingly been recognized, unsurprisingly given the strong human influence on biodiversity.

From the perspective of ethnozoology, the book addresses all aspects of human connection, animals and health, from its use in traditional medicine, to bioprospecting derivatives of fauna for pharmaceuticals, with expert contributions from leading researchers in the field.



  • Draws on editors' and contributors' extensive research, experience and studies covering ethnozoology and ethnobiology
  • Covers all aspects of human-animal interaction through the lens of this emerging discipline, with coverage of both domestic and wild animal topics
  • Presents topics of great interest to a variety of researchers including those in wildlife/conservation (biologists, ecologists, conservationists) and domestic-related disciplines (psychologists, sociologists)

Autore

Rômulo R.N. Alves is a biologist (Ph.D. in Zoology, 2006) with a keen interest in the connections between humans and animals. His areas of academic interest are ethnozoology and wildlife trade, uses and conservation, zootherapy, and human ecology. He has conducted ethnobiological research for the last ten years, which focuses on ethnozoology, particularly on fisheries, hunting, and wildlife trade and uses. As a result, he has published (as author or co-author) more than 150 scientific papers published in both national and international journals, 7 books and more than 50 book chapters. He coordinates projects on hunting and uses of wildlife in Brazil. In addition, he is one of the Editors-in-Chief of the journal Ethnobiology and Conservation and member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine. He also holds a Productivity scholarship provided by the National Council of Science and Technology (CNPq).
Ulysses Paulino de Albuquerque is graduate at Biological Sciences from Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (1993), master's at Plant Biology (Taxonomy and Ethnobotany) from Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (1996) and PhD at Plant Biology (Ethnobotany) from Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (2001). Currently he is professor of Universidade Federal Rural de Pernambuco (Pernambuco, Northeastern Brazil) where he coordinates the Laboratory of Applied and Theoretical Ethnobiology and teaches graduate students and postgraduates. He was president of the Brazilian Society of Ethnobiology and Ethnoecology (2005-2008). He acts in the areas of ecological anthropology, ethnobotany, biodiversity conservation, applied botany, ethnopharmacology and natural products. He has a special interest in the comprehension of the factors that modulate the relation between people and plants on the interface of ecology and evolutive processes. He is member of editorial board of the Economic Botany (Associate Editor),Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine (deputy editor), and Ethnobiology and Conservation (Chief Editor)
