Erratum:  Facing Global Change through Social-Ecological Research


The original published version of this editorial included a statement which implied that Patricia Shanley was the recipient of the SPES award. The actual recipient was Glória Gaia. The corrected statement now appears in the online article. The statement below is the original, erroneous version.

"We congratulate Patricia Shanley (2006) on her perceptive piece titled “Science for the Poor: How One Woman Challenged Researchers, Ranchers, and Loggers in Amazonia.” In her work, she tackles the thorny issue of the scientific and political applications of research by asking and answering the question: Who is science for, and how can science reach disenfranchised populations? She uses the personal story of Glória Gaia to illustrate her argument that scientists and practitioners should communicate not only with the scientific research community but also with local people, especially women and marginalized populations. This new form of outreach should add to local ecological knowledge and lead to other ways of knowing that make it easier to deal with environmental change."
