Understanding the nature and role of experiential knowledge for environmental conservation is a necessary step towards understanding if it should be used and how it might be applied with other types of knowledge in an evidence-based approach. This paper describes the nature of experiential and expert knowledge. It then discusses the role of experiential knowledge as a complement to scientific knowledge and explains the interplay between experiential knowledge with conservation research and… 
Toward rigorous use of expert knowledge in ecological research
TLDR
An exploration of the diversity of expert knowledge and of rigorous methods in its use is addressed, showing how careful matching of experts to application is essential and has to go beyond a simple fitting of the expert to the knowledge domain.
Linking a conceptual framework on systems thinking with experiential knowledge
This paper addresses a systemic approach for the study of fishers’ ecological knowledge in order to describe fishers’ ways of knowing and dealing with complexity in ecosystems, and discusses how
On the Role of Perception: Understanding Stakeholders’ Collaboration in Natural Resources Management through the Evolutionary Theory of Innovation
TLDR
This paper sets up a theoretical framework that is able to explain not only why the different types of knowledge differ, but also why they should differ and why this divergence is useful to develop fisheries management and concludes that diversity (distance) between types ofknowledge is essential for interactive learning, innovation, the incorporation of new ideas or to avoid lock-in.
Bridging Indigenous and science-based knowledge in coastal-marine research, monitoring, and management in Canada: a systematic map protocol
TLDR
This systematic map seeks to examine the extent, range, and nature of the published literature that integrates and/or includes Indigenous and science-based knowledge in coastal-marine research, monitoring, or management in Canada.
Knowledge exchange: a review and research agenda for environmental management
SUMMARY There is increasing emphasis on the need for effective ways of sharing knowledge to enhance environmental management and sustainability. Knowledge exchange (KE) are processes that generate,

TLDR
Australian practitioners were asked to respond to 2 common management scenarios in which there is strong evidence that managing genetic diversity can improve outcomes, and demonstrated a stronger understanding of the effective management of genetic diversity than the definitions of the relevant concepts.

USING TRADITIONAL ECOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE IN SCIENCE: METHODS AND APPLICATIONS
Advocates of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) have promoted its use in scientific research, impact assessment, and ecological understanding. While several examples illustrate the utility of

Learning more effectively from experience
Developing the capacity for individuals to learn effectively from their experiences is an important part of building the knowledge and skills in organizations to do good adaptive management. This
TRADITIONAL ECOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE: THE THIRD ALTERNATIVE (COMMENTARY)
TLDR
Convergence of TEK and Western science suggests that there may be areas in which TEK can contribute insights, or possibly even new concepts, to Western science.
Tacit Knowledge and Environmental Management
Can methods applied in medicine be used to summarize and disseminate conservation research?
TLDR
Using systematic reviews and an evidence-based approach will only be one tool of many to reduce uncertainty when making conservation-related decisions, and does complement other approaches, and could facilitate the use of the best available research in environmental management.
Effectiveness in Conservation Practice: Pointers from Medicine and Public Health
TLDR
The rationale is that conservation actions for which scarce resources are sought should be justified by good scientific evidence, and this will also encourage more research addressing practical issues in conservation management.
