Dissonant Views of Socioecological Problems: Local Perspectives and Conservation Policies in Xochimilco, Mexico

I wanted to share this really important article by Maya Rubio, Fernanda Figureroa, Luis Zambrano et al, about the problems (and potential solutions!) within the complex socio-ecology at Xochimilco. I love the communication within the survey that gives a strong voice to the local community in the agricultural and tourist areas of Xochimilco. If this is heavy reading do have a look at this article afterwards - for more on the solutions and collaboration within the socio-ecosystem, evolving right now between UNAM conservation biologists and farmers - to promote the organic traditional ways of farming as a means to help protect the axolotls as flagship species.
