About this book

Biodiversity and the Ancestors intends to span an arc between legislative efforts on local, regional, national and local levels and traditional ways of maintaining the environment and its biodiversity. On the one hand, Biodiversity and the Ancestors serves as a guide to the broad range of provisions directly and indirectly relating to the protection of biological diversity. On the other hand, the case studies provide a unique insight into the practices, customs and customary laws of people living in traditional settings and from various communities throughout Namibia.

Biodiversity and the Ancestors is a source of information and provides guidance for lawyers, anthropologists, students, policymakers and all those members of the public interested in environmental concerns, biodiversity conservation and traditional customs in Namibia. It covers a broad variety of topics that include the protection of land, grass, medicinal plants, fish, and trees. The essays contained in Biodiversity and the Ancestors are of result of BIOTA work in the Faculty of Law of the University of Namibia over the last four years.
