Indigenous communities have often been marginalized in the sciences through research approaches that are not inclusive of their cultures and histories. Although the term traditional ecological knowledge, or TEK, has entered the discourse in wildlife management and conservation, working between Western and Indigenous paradigms can present challenges in cross-cultural communication and conceptualizations of TEK. In the January issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management, researcher Seafha Ramos discusses her work using Indigenous research methodologies to explore the conceptualization of TEK and wildlife management with the Yurok Tribe of California. The work could help other researchers who are interested in IRM and culturally sensitive wildlife research with Indigenous communities.

Other articles look at factors affecting bighorn sheep activity at water developments, woodland caribou abundance and forest disturbance, mortality and survival patterns of Pacific martens, and more.
