Abstract

Ellie Bock explored conceptualisations of ecological economics, biocultural concepts and governance, investigating Indigenous Protected Areas intersecting with the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and its buffer. Her study found evidence of the presence and emergence of biocultural ecological economies in the Wet Tropics bioregion, with implications for restorative governance policy.
