Abstract:  Community‐based conservation (CBC) is based on the idea that if conservation and development could be simultaneously achieved, then the interests of both could be served. It has been controversial because community development objectives are not necessarily consistent with conservation objectives in a given case. I examined CBC from two angles. First, CBC can be seen in the context of paradigm shifts in ecology and applied ecology. I identified three conceptual shifts—toward a…

Community-based conservation in a globalized world

TLDR
Improving the integration of conservation and development requires rethinking conservation by using a complexity perspective and the ability to deal with multiple objectives, use of partnerships and deliberative processes, and learning from commons research to develop diagnostic tools.

TLDR
It is suggested that the way the authors interact with other species in management and the extent to which those interactions reflect the interactions among other biotic organisms, and also reflect their conservation virtues, influences their ability to cultivate naturalness on the landscape.

TLDR
It is argued that historical ecological research can only be conducted at extents for which sources in both disciplines have comparable resolutions, and human societies should be acknowledged as integral parts of ecosystems and societal processes should be recognized as driving forces of ecosystem change.
Revamping community‐based conservation through participatory research
Community-based conservation is experiencing a crisis of identity and purpose as a result of a disappointing track record and unresolved deficiencies. The latter include over-simplified assumptions
