|Title:||Uso De Recursos Na Mata Atlântica: O Caso Da Ponta Do Almada (ubatuba, Brasil)|
De Freitas Leitao-Filho H.
|Abstract:||The Brazilian Atlantic Forest is considered one of the world's hot-spots for biodiversity conservation, in which caiçaras are a typical population, maintaining a close relationship with the environment, through fishing and small-scale agriculture. The purpose of this study is to obtain information about natural resource use (specially on plants and fish) at Ponta do Almada community (São Paulo State, Brazil). Data were collected through interviews with residents, and through systematic observation about food consumption and fishing activities. About 152 folk plant species were mentioned as used for various purposes. Food choices and fish taboos are analyzed. Results show shifts in caiçaras' original subsistence, yet maintaining a close relationship with their environment, from agriculture to fishing. Other activities have been developed, such as tourism and shell-fish cultivation.|
