Introduction
Forest ecosystems and communities, often agro-extractive, require the agro and biotechnological modernization of their current modes of production, which are uncompetitive in current economic models. However, the rich traditional knowledge that such native populations have is of valuable importance for the efficiency of agronomic and forest management, as well as for enhancing the latent Bioeconomy in most Conservation Unit scenarios. The interlacing of technologies and traditional knowledge, results in a still little exploitable binomial in forest ecosystems. Ethnobotany as an important instrument for directing the exploitation of forest resources, associated with vegetation ecophysiology studies, is one of the many essential aspects for the sustainable development of agroforestry communities. Similarly, the management of aquatic environments aimed at protecting nurseries of fish species, associated with fishermen's culture, and is a fundamental component when thinking about the agro-forest ecosystem in a Systemic way. Finally, the sciences such as plant biotechnology, for example, are crucial for the verticalization of productive chains such as vegetable oils and fruits in the tropical Forests. Thus, the theme FOREST ECOSYSTEMS, AGROEXTRACTIVISM AND LOCAL DEVELOPMENT aims to gather scientific articles that discuss forest and agro ecosystems from the aspects of ethnobotany, plant physiology, culture, forest lake management, plant biotechnology, agroforestry management, forest economy and of smart forest communities.
