Listening to the sacred voices from the periphery at dusk. Ecological edges, the boundaries or transitions from one ecosystem to another, often exhibit higher levels of species richness or biodiversity. These transitional areas show features of species representative of the ecosystems they transcend, as well as having their own unique array of species and characteristics.
Cultural transitional areas, zones where two or more cultures converge and interact, are similarly rich and diverse in cultural traits. This results in an increase in cultural capital and resilience, by providing a wider range of traditional ecological knowledge and wisdom on which to draw, especially in times of stress and change. What are the ecological edges and cultural transitional areas in your community?
