Abstract: Tapping and documenting the traditional knowledge of indigenous people and local communities is a topic that has received increasing worldwide concern. Very often, researchers, agencies and companies gather information on forest-related knowledge without the consent of its holders. Although these knowledge holders are mostly willing to share, they will be losing out when products are commercialised without their knowledge.
