Abstract

Disciplines from Ethnography, Geography, Ethnology, and Anthropology to Cultural Ecology and Ecological Anthropology have studied the development of human-nature relationships. Ecological Anthropology, which takes ecosystem theories as the analysis tools and acculturation as the core concept, has concentrated on the local knowledge of enclosed territories and the traditional knowledge and wisdom of acculturation. In an era of rapid-development, the local knowledge brought to light by Ecological Anthropology, and the discipline itself, are faced with challenges. The interviewee, Shaoting Yin, clarified the origins and scope of Ecological Anthropology and emphasized the efforts that should be made to understand how accrued local knowledge can be passed down. He also suggested how Ecological Anthropology can continue to develop and change.
