    Implications of the diversity of concepts and values of nature in the management and governance of protected and conserved areas
    Mallarach, Josep-Maria ; Frascaroli, Fabrizio ; Tuladhar-Douglas, Will ; Liljeblad, Jonathan ; Borde, R. ; Bernbaum, Edwin ; Verschuuren, B. - \ 2018
    In: Cultural and Spiritual Significance of Nature in Protected Areas / Verschuuren, B., Brown, S., Routledge - ISBN 9781138091184 - p. 21 - 35.
    This chapter discusses the diversity of concepts and values of ‘nature’. It provides a background to the Western Enlightenment construct of ‘nature’ and examines the ways in which this worldview has historically shaped the designation, management, and governance of protected areas—with particular reference to the perspectives and work of the IUCN. We also consider why a Western concept of nature as separate or contrary continues to be applied, but equally the ways in which diverse worldviews—expressed in language and religion, for example—are re-shaping conservation practice. We conclude by discussing the opportunities and challenges that recognising and integrating diverse concepts and values of nature has for the conservation community.

    Linking Biocultural Diversity and Sacred Sites: Evidence and Recommendations in the European Framework
    Frascaroli, Fabrizio ; Verschuuren, B. - \ 2016

    There is growing recognition that sacred natural sites (SNS) form
    hotspots of biocultural diversity and significantly contribute to conservation in
    traditional non-western societies. Using empirical evidence from SNS in Central
    Italy, we illustrate how a similar link between spiritual, cultural, and biological
    values can be fundamental also in relatively secular and modernized European
    contexts. We show that SNS are key to sustaining traditional practices and local
    identities, and represent important instances of biodiversity-rich cultural landscapes.
    Based on other case studies from across Europe, we suggest that these conclusions
    can be relevant also at a broader European scale. Greater awareness from planners
    and policy-makers, however, is needed to safeguard and emphasize the role of
    European sacred sites as refugia for biocultural diversity. We review policy
    guidelines on SNS previously developed by International Union for the
    Conservation for Nature (IUCN) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and
    Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and aimed at protected area managers and
    planners. We assess the applicability of these guidelines in European contexts, and
    complement them with findings and insight from Central Italy. We provide recommendations
    for guidelines that are suited to SNS related to mainstream faiths in
