Tribes of Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve and their Indigenous Knowledge

S.N. Chaudhary (Author) R.P. Singh (Author)
Synopsis Like other Biosphere reserve, the Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve in Madhya Pradesh is the abode of various tribal groups. Indigenous. Knowledge has been playing a significant role in the life of Gond, Korku and Bharia tribes living in the Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve in spite of their increasing exposure to the outside world. This book documents the role of such indigenous knowledge of the aforesaid ethnic groups in the management of agriculture, forest and fishing, health and diseases as well as their socio economic life. The study reveals that the amount of conflict is low and integration and adjustment between the modern knowledge and indigenous knowledge in high. Further, it is inferred that, if properly managed, indigenous knowledge can play a vital role in their sustainable development.
