    INDIGENOUS Communities ARE Better At Preserving Biodiversity, Research Shows

    This is your interpretation and it's wrong, it is you making it a racial issue when it is simply one of misrepresentation. There are now two, current threads which have valid aspects of concern (misrepresentation and conflict of interest) that people should be able to discuss without fear of...

    INDIGENOUS Communities ARE Better At Preserving Biodiversity, Research Shows

    In life generally, respect is earned but it can be lost by an individual due to their actions or inactions. What some people here do not respect and will not tolerate, are the opinions of others that differ from their own, total hypocrisy.

    INDIGENOUS Communities ARE Better At Preserving Biodiversity, Research Shows

    You'd do well to remember that though this forum is frequented by people from all over the World, it is a British forum with a British owner. Regarding posts that don't designate the geographical position to your liking, by Brits, I'd suggest they are very few, Americans use state codes that...

    INDIGENOUS Communities ARE Better At Preserving Biodiversity, Research Shows

    I wonder if the 'hunter, gatherer' lifestyle is the reason? Farming communities are removing forest at an alarming rate as opposed to the above who depend on the forests to a large degree, to thrive. I'd suggest that the communitiies used in this study, are not farmers, indiginous Brazilian...
