¿Qué es la SimBioDiversidad?

agustin antunez corrales | La SimBioDiversidad es un nuevo enfoque transdisciplinar desarrollado en las últimas dos décadas con el objetivo de incluir, en el concepto de Biodiversidad, todo lo relacionado con lo humano y lo social. De esa manera trata de superar la visión biologicista dominante de la Biodiversidad, en la que las disciplinas relacionadas con lo humano y lo social están prácticamente ausentes, ya que no suelen formar parte de los estudios universitarios de Biología.
Creemos que La SimBioDiversidad supera con éxito la barrera entre humanos y naturaleza, o entre las llamadas ciencias sociales y ciencias naturales.
