Background: Home gardens (HGs) are hotspots of in situ agrobiodiversity conservation. We conducted a case study in Tabasco, México, on HG owners’ knowledge of HG ecological, economical and socio-cultural multifunctionality and how it relates to agrobiodiversity as measured by species richness and diversity. The term multifunctionality knowledge refers to owners’ knowledge on how HGs contribute to ecological processes, family economy, as well as human relations and local culture. We hypothesized a positive correlation between owners’ multifunctionality knowledge and their HGs’ agrobiodiversity. Methods: We inventoried all perennial species in 20 HGs, determined observed species richness, calculated Shannon diversity indexes and analysed species composition using non-metric multidimensional scaling (NMDS). Based on literature, semi-structured interviews and a dialogue of knowledge with HG owners, we catalogued the locally recognized functions in the ecological, economic and socio-cultural dimensions. We determined the score of knowledge on each function in the three dimensions on explicit scales based on the interviews and observed management. We determined Spearman rs correlations of HGs’ observed species richness, Shannon diversity index (H) and of HGs’ scores on NMDS-axis and multifunctionality knowledge scores. We dialogued on the results and implications for agrobiodiversity conservation at workshops of HG owners, researchers and local organizations.

Results: HG agrobiodiversity and owners’ multifunctionality knowledge in the study area showed large variation. Average richness was 59.6 perennial species, varying from 21 to 107 species, and total observed richness was 280 species. A total of 38 functions was distinguished, with 14, 12 and 12 functions in the ecological, economic and socio-cultural dimensions. Total multifunctionality knowledge scores varied from 64.1 to 106.6, with an average of 87.2. Socio-cultural functionality knowledge scores were the highest, followed by scores in the ecological and economic dimensions. Species richness and Shannon H were significantly correlated with ecological functionality knowledge (rs=0.68 and P< 0.001 in both cases), and species richness was also correlated with economic functionality knowledge (rs=0.47, P= 0.03). Species composition scores on the first and second axes of NMDS was significantly correlated with knowledge of ecological multifunctionality, with rs= 0.49 resp-0.49 and P= 0.03 in both cases. Other functionality knowledge scores showed no correlation with NMDS scores. Dialogue in workshops confirmed the interwovenness of multifunctionality knowledge and agrobiodiversity. Conclusion: The rich agrobiodiversity of home gardens cherished by rural families in Tabasco relates with the knowledge about HG functionality in the ecological and economic dimensions. Also, species composition relates with ecological functionality knowledge. The socio-cultural functionality knowledge, which includes many elements beyondthe individual HG, is not correlated with agrobiodiversity, but had the highest scores. Our results show that multifunctionality knowledge provides many opportunities for the participative conception and planning of policies and actions necessary to conserve agrobiodiversity.

Resumen en inglés

Agroecological transformation must often take place in degraded landscapes. Thus, ecological restoration and related fields may extend agroecology’s reach. At the same time, agroecological practice may enhance ecological functions, contributing to ecosystem recovery in rural landscapes. The long-term impact of these initiatives will depend upon how they mesh with peasant territoriality; the relationship between land and people in its socioeconomic, political-institutional and symbolic-cultural dimensions. We analyzed agroecological and restoration/recuperation initiatives originating from government and non-governmental organizations with direct government support, and from peasant protagonism. We examined official records of initiatives in both categories, conducted in-depth interviews with public officials, and surveyed 47 small peasants associated with organic and agroecological markets. Government and government-linked NGO initiatives operate according to a neoliberal vision of sustainable-development that privileges generation of financial capital, also they have decreased their support for agroecology, and have little or no engagement with restoration/recuperation in terms of ecological or social complexity. By contrast, we identify a strong tendency in peasant agroecology that incorporates restoration/recuperation to achieve greater ecological and cultural complexity. The synergies that arise between agroecology and ecological recovery contribute to the construction of peasant territoriality, and are particularly evident in initiatives driven by indigenous organizations.

Resumen en inglés

In this paper we examine processes of scaling agroecological practices in the Maya-Achí territory of Guatemala. We compare the Achí case to other examples documented in the literature and the key factors, or “drivers,” reported as important if not essential for scaling to occur. We find that the Achí scase is complex with regard to these drivers. Factors such as constructivist learning/teaching methods, favorable public policies, and strong social fabric appear to be weak, absent, or even negative. This is due in part to the violence and repression of the 1980s, which resulted in the assassination of 20 percent of the population by the military and paramilitaries, leaving the territory socially fragmented. Projects incorporating agroecology (revalorization of ancestral practices, seed saving, elimination of external inputs, strengthening soil health, increasing/guarding agrobiodiversity) are viewed as a potential strategy to aid in community recovery, and are promoted by local associations as well as by international institutions and NGOs. While social and cultural recuperation were initially hypothesized as primary causes for the adoption of practices, we encounter a range of additional and complex factors, such as the expectation of economic benefits and the presence of aid and development organizations. By analyzing these drivers and barriers we contribute to the ongoing debate over how agroecological practices may be scaled-out, particularly in regions exhibiting less than ideal conditions.

Resumen en español

La meliponicultura, practicada por distintas culturas, está constituida de diversos saberes contemporáneos (conocimientos, prácticas y creencias en constante producción y reproducción). El presente estudio aborda el estado actual de la meliponicultura en Tabasco, considerándola como patrimonio biocultural. Se realizaron entrevistas semiestructuradas sobre la relación que tienen las personas con las abejas que cultivan y los saberes contemporáneos que poseen. Se registraron 101 meliponicultores en 15 de los 17 municipios, el 24% pertenece a un grupo indígena. El municipio con mayor número de meliponicultores es el de Tenosique (37), seguido de Tacotalpa (14) y Balancán (11). Se cultivan once especies de meliponinos. Se entrevistaron 81 meliponicultores y se clasificaron en tres tipos de acuerdo a su objetivo: tradicionales (52%), resignificados (42%) y conservacionistas (6%). Lo más común es tener la colmena en troncos (52%), un 32% las tiene en cajas y un 16%, tanto en troncos como en troncos modificados y cajas. El 11% de los meliponicutores sabe dividir sus colmenas. La miel, la cera y la colmena tienen diferentes usos: comestibles, medicinales y religiosos. La relación de los meliponicultores con las abejas es compleja y va más allá de lo utilitario; esta práctica implica saberes contemporáneos sobre la etología, ecología y morfología de las especies de meliponinos. Hay un declive de la meliponicultura en Tabasco por lo que es apremiante tener un mayor conocimiento de ésta y fomentarla entre las nuevas generaciones a partir de un diálogo de saberes.

Resumen en inglés

Meliponiculture, practiced by different cultures, is composed of diverse se contemporary knowledges (knowledge, practices and beliefs that are constantly produced and reproduced). This research investigates the current state of meliponiculture in Tabasco, considering it as a biocultural heritage. Semi-structured interviews were used to know the relationship that people have with the bees that they cultivate and the contemporary knowledge they possess. We registered 101 stingless beekeepers in 15 of the 17 municipalities, of these 24% belongs to an indigenous group. 81 stingless beekeepers were interviewed and classified in three types according to their objective: traditional (52%), resignified (42%) and conservationists (6%). The community with the highest number of stingless beekeepers is Tenosique (37), followed by Tacotalpa (14) and Balancán (11). They cultivate 11 species of stingless bees. The most commom type of beehive is in log hive (52%), 32% have them in boxes of wood and 16% in logs, modified logs and boxes. The 11% of beekeepers know how to divide their beehives. Honey, wax and hive have different uses: food, medicinal, magical-religious and ritual. The relationship between stingless beekeepers with bees is complex and goes beyond the utilitarian realm; this practice includes contemporary knowledges about the ethology, ecology and morphology of the different species of meliponines. There is a decline of meliponiculture in Tabasco so it is urgent to have a greater knowledge of it and to promote it among the new generations through a dialogue of knowledges.

Resumen en inglés

In this paper we explore the depth dimension of agroecological scaling. Through interviews, focus groups and participant observation, we explore the link between agroecology and the recovery and maintenance of ecosystem functions through three case studies in peasant communities in southern Mexico. These communities have contrasting ecological, social and historical contexts, but all engage in autonomous initiatives for agroecology and nature protection. We found that agroecology deepens when rooted in a cultural matrix of peasant identity, spiritual values, and local institutions.

Resumen en español

Analizamos cómo el cambio rural en el sureste mexicano influye en la agrobiodiversidad arbórea y arbustiva en huertos familiares —considerados como entes bioculturales— y cuáles son las implicaciones para la conservación de los bosques tropicales. Partimos de estudios disponibles sobre la relación entre, por un lado, la agrobiodiversidad y, por otro lado, la diferenciación social al interior de comunidades, el grado de urbanidad/ruralidad de estas y los paisajes culturales en los cuales están inmersos los huertos. La diferenciación social, manifiesta entre otros factores en una tenencia de la tierra cada vez más inequitativa, incide en la agrobiodiversidad en los huertos: las familias relativamente pobres conservan más especies nativas, por depender más de la gama de productos que estas proporcionan, mientras que familias relativamente ricas se concentran en frutales.

En comunidades rurales había mayor riqueza de especies arbóreas y arbustivas y mayor proporción de árboles nativas que en huertos periurbanos. En los paisajes culturales más deforestados de agricultura industrializada y ganadería extensiva, emanados de un megaproyecto de modernización y colonización, la agrobiodiversidad en los huertos fue menor que en el paisaje cultural menos deforestado de agricultura de subsistencia y ganadería en la misma región. En un área fuertemente deforestada e impactada socialmente y económicamente por la industria petrolera, de largo historial de ocupación, se mantuvo una alta agrobiodiversidad, con un componente relevante de especies de la región nacidas espontáneamente y toleradas. Lo anterior demuestra la diversificación de los huertos familiares en el sureste mexicano en los procesos de cambio en curso. Se mantienen como entes bioculturales de alta agrobiodiversidad, de la cual la mayor parte (las especies nativas y neotropicales) son compartidas con la vegetación regional. Con ello, los huertos familiares representan una contribución mayor a la conservación de los bosques tropicales y las culturas locales asociadas a ellos.

Resumen en inglés

Agroecology as a transformative movement has gained momentum in many countries worldwide. In several cases, the implementation of agroecological practices has grown beyond isolated, local experiences to be employed by ever-greater numbers of families and communities over ever-larger territories and to engage more people in the processing, distribution, and consumption of agroecologically produced food. To understand the nonlinear, multidimensional processes that have enabled and impelled the bringing to scale of agroecology, we review and analyze emblematic cases that include the farmer-to-farmermovement in Central America; the national peasant agroecologymovement in Cuba; the organic coffee boom in Chiapas, Mexico; the spread of Zero Budget Natural Farming in Karnataka, India; and the agroecological farmer–consumer marketing network “Rede Ecovida,” in Brazil. On the basis of our analysis, we identify eight key drivers of the process of taking agroecology to scale: (1) recognition of a crisis that motivates the search for alternatives, (2) social organization, (3) constructivist learning processes, (4) effective agroecological practices, (5) mobilizing discourses, (6) external allies, (7) favorable markets, and (8) favorable policies. This initial analysis shows that organization and social fabric are the growth media on which agroecology advances, with the help of the other drivers. A more detailed understanding is needed on how these multiple dimensions interact with, reinforce, and generate positive feedback with each other to make agroecology’s territorial expansion possible.
